Donation to the Canadian Federation of University Women




"Coronation" Pendant





"Orleans" Bracelet


Back in June, we were asked by a member of The Canadian Federation of University Women if we would be interested in donating a couple of pieces for an upcoming silent auction . The national AGM for the organization was being held in Victoria, BC on June 22 - 24, 2012 and the organization was looking for items to showcase local artists. Lisa, whom I had just met the week prior, was kind enough to think of us, and we were honoured to be asked to participate.

After some deliberation we chose to donate the two items picture above. The pendant is hand-crafted from a silver-plated bonbon/tomato spoon. The pattern is "Coronation" 1936 by Community Plate, and the pendant features a wire wrapped crystal and bead charm. The bracelet is made from a silver-plated serving spoon. The pattern is "Orleans" 1964 by 1847 Rogers Bros International Deep Silver, and features two wire wrapped charms. The value of the two items was $95 but we were delighted to hear that they helped raise $165 for the CFUW Charitable Trust and that many of the women in attendance enjoyed our items.  

Thank you again to Lisa and to the CFUW. We were happy to align ourselves with an organization whose work has an important purpose. The organization is committed to:

  • Improving the status of women and girls
  • Promoting quality public education
  • Advancing the status of women, human rights, justice and peace

  • Please visit their website at www.cfuw.org
