Rosie Runs....

Rosie of Brave or Foolish plans to run the grueling 26 miles of the 2010 London Marathon in aid of The Miscarriage Association.
I am in awe of anyone who can run, let alone run the marathon. I doubt I could even run to the end of my road! What makes Rosie's attempt even more amazing in my eyes is that she is not a marathon runner. She is starting her preperation after four months of pregnancy-induced strict bedrest and eight months of being a stay at home mother. You can read more about her story here.
In order to run the London Marathon she needs to raise £1300. Rosie and I went to school together (all those years ago :)). When I heard of her fundraising attempt I decided to try and help.
So, I have donated this gorgeous one of a kind lampwork bracelet, which she is auctioning with all proceeds (minus any ebay fees) going to the cause.
The bracelet features artisan beads by Rachel Dawes of Earth and Fire Beads in gorgeous sorbet colours of lemon, orange and strawberry. The lampwork beads feature floral, dotty and fine stringer detailing. I have handwired the beads together using sterling silver wire and finished it with a silver s-clasp.
You can find the auction here.

So, if you fancy helping out a fantastic cause why not place a bid. You only have a few hours left so make sure you head over their now.
You can also help out by visiting Rosie's sponsershop page at Justgiving.com
Or you can buy something from either of my shops Beady Pool or Beady Pool on Folksy as I am donating 10% of all sales until the end of the auction.
Or why not visit Seethewoods shop as Leanne has also kindly offered to donate 10% of her sales as well.
With so may ways to help out - which one will you choose??

I too am in awe of anyone who can run any distance...let alone a marathon. Good luck to your friend.

And what a lovely idea to help. It's such a pretty bracelet, you're sure to do very well... Good luck with your auction and sales.
