* Okizu Fundraiser Photos

Recently I traveled to San Francisco to attend the annual Camp Okizu fundraiser that supports California children with cancer and their families. I donated a bold necklace, earrings and bracelet to the silent auction. It was fun to sit back and watch a bidding war happen and a gal named Jeanne excitedly win the auction. It went for $275 which is more than enough to send one child to camp.

The costumes and performers were magnificent. This champagne skirt was on wheels and she rolled it around. The worms were alive and some people ate them. I was so happy to see Janelle Giles, from Button Central. She is an Okizu event board member and invited me. It was a wonderful night.

About Ruby Mae Jewelry

I'm Leah Williams and I adore fabulous buttons and brooches , chains and charms. I find it exciting to look into old tin cans passed down through the generations. They hold buttons and hardware removed from all types of garments. I reuse old buttons and it connects me to men and women that I'll never get to meet. I'm a "no harm button artist" and as such I don't alter, cut, flatten or change intact vintage buttons. I also leave the original thread on a button. I'm inspired to create something new from something that was forgotten. I love, love, love it.
