Today's post is about art supporting art.
During high school my daughter has developed a love for theatre.
The scene below shows her troupe recently performing "Screen" at the VHSL state level one act play competition for the second year in a row.
Now it's time for the spring musical. This year's pick, "The Wizard of Oz"- It's one of my all time favorites.
This group has a great parent booster club who does auctions, food sales and more during the plays to raise the funds needed to keep this troupe viable. I decided to contribute a Wizard of Oz jewelry collection and donate it for this purpose.

Here is a sweet grouping of charms I ordered from an Etsy seller. I also ordered the letters 'O & Z' I opted not to use the balloon.
I kept this jewelry simple for several reasons. One, to keep my costs down since it's a donation. Two, so I could finish it in a short amount of time so it won't compete with other orders I'm doing, and lastly because these are nice quality charms and they don't need a lot of excess bling to make them pretty.
I kept the embellishments simple. I ended up making 4 pair of various earrings, three bangles and the main necklace.
"OZ" earrings- they are silver tone [not sure why they look colored in this pic]
Wire wrapped bangles with ruby slipper and stardust bead charms.
I also volunteered to create 60 simple charm pendant necklaces, as gifts for the cast and crew in cooperation with the director. I have purchased 5 lots of mixed charms with 12 themes so the kids will all get a little something different. Those materials are on order, I am donating my time and giving these at cost. Teacher's don't have a lot of extra $ and this director goes above and beyond for her kids.
On a side note, as a thank you for my contribution, TTE gets a free advertisement in the play bill- not a bad trade if I do say so myself.
"So, I'm off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of OZ...... " :-D
