Featured Artist: EchoEndeavor

EchoEndeavor creates elegant jewelry in soft hues, and proceeds benefit a local breast cancer charity!

 The artist says: "All items are handmade and proceeds are donated to "echo": Endeavor to Contribute to the Health of Others, a non-profit charity that helps cover costs associated with breast cancer care.
Several years ago I began exploring new ventures and hobbies as a means of enduring the rigors of graduate school. Little did I know that these interests would stick, even after I completed my formal education. Quickly realizing that my new hobbies were massing quite the collection and doing me little benefit piled in a drawer or upon a shelf, I decided to put my interests to work for others. As I was doing my graduate work in the field of cancer research, I looked to the Betty Puskar Breast Care Center next door to my research laboratory. Meeting a wonderfully sweet lady by the name of Miss Alice who helped me to get things organized, I began donating the proceeds from items I made to the breast care center to benefit those in my community who were in need of support. Whether they needed help paying for a mammogram or paying for cancer medicines, that is exactly what echo was set up to help those when insurance couldn't. So far, over $7,000.00 has been donated to echo, or the Endeavor to Contribute to the Health of Others. My goal (which was originally $1,000.00) is now up to $15,000.00. You can learn more about echo by visiting the website:"  

I'd like for these earrings to contribute to my ears!
