To have to take the income that's supposed to pay for food, medical insurance, school supplies, the electric bill, braces for the kids - and hand it over to an attorney to defend against this random person is virtually impossible for some of the defendants. So please, go check out the AGLF Etsy shop or visit here for more information and to donate directly to the Fund.
Every little bit helps.

The AGLF is a co-operative that was organized to help independent artists and craftspeople with legal expenses ranging from fraud to copy write infringement; from creative property theft to malicious and frivolous lawsuits. All proceeds from the sale of this calendar will go directly to the Fund.
The 2010 calendar was a huge fund-raising success as well as a great opportunity to become published. I was proud to be one of the many independent artists included last year and I hope to be again this year.
Submission is open to ALL of the handmade arts so don't be afraid to show what you've got. If you're a ceramic artist, metal smith, jewelry designer, lampworker, beader, baker or candlestick maker...if you create beautiful things by hand, they want your pictures!
You can send your submissions in the form of 300 dpi images, as well as website and/or blog links and additional info here.

And this one! I love the blues and I was really excited to see a design using these glass rings. I love them, but had no idea how they could be incorporated into a design. Go check out this necklace and so many other pretties at the Pearl and Pebble Etsy shop.

I love seeing where my bead babies end up. Aren't these earrings gorgeous? I love copper components but I never would have imagined these working with it (that, of course, is why I don't make jewelry).
Fortunately, Tari over at Pearl and Pebble could. The result: perfect, beachy little earrings. I wish I had them for my upcoming trip to the island!
