Art Now for Autism

I am so proud to be able to be part of this charity, Art Now for Autism.
Art Now for Autism is an annual online fine arts and crafts exhibition and fund raiser benefiting autism awareness and research. This year's event will benefit Autism Speaks with 100% of art sales going directly to them through their National Walk Now for Autism Speaks. The reverse auction begins October 5th at 9am.
 I have 3 pieces in the auction as one lot, the one above, which is a day of the dead pendant on decorative cording.

 This necklace, which is millefiori pieces collaged on to a filigree piece strung with glass and millefiori beads, signed with a millefiori bead. The images you see are not painted, but layered colored clays that build the image and then cross sections are cut and drilled to make these beads.

And the matching bracelet!

There are tons of other artists and their work.
There are also 3 pages of work by artists with Autism or Asperger's Syndrome.

Reverse Auction Opens AT 9AM EST.
All Art is $90
