Movers and Shakers Gala – JLM Studio Donates Pendant to Benefit Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra and Lakeland College

I was recently invited to donate a piece for auction at the upcoming Movers and Shakers Gala on May, 22nd 2010.  This event benefits the Sheboygan Symphony Orchestra and Lakeland College.  A few years ago, my husband, Andy – at that time Music Director of the Sheboygan Symphony – and I attended the 1st Movers and Shakers Gala.  Patterned after Dancing with the Stars, the evening featured a ballroom dance competition where local celebrities were paired with professional dancers in performances of their chosen dance.  We all got to vote for our favorite couple, and a winner was selected at the end of the evening.   The evening was a lot of fun…getting the opportunity to dust off my own dance shoes and take a twirl on the floor with my husband was the icing on the cake.

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll recognize the pendant I made for this event as one of my recent designs.  In case you are new to A Talent for Design, here is the original design:

(If you can’t attend the Movers and Shakers Ball on the 22nd and would like to own one of these pendants, don’t despair.  Another one is already in process at my bench.)
