Hey, y’all

Just a heads up that I am going to start donating to my local abortion fund every month using a portion of my Etsy profits, starting July 1st. Reproductive freedom is extremely important to me and I want to start putting my money where my mouth is, especially in light of the recent strikedown of Roe vs Wade.

If you’re cool with that, great! Happy to have you here. I have decided if I’m going to do a set amount or a percentage of sales yet, so don’t feel pressured to buy more things in my shop. Just want you to know my goals and values. I’m glad that yours are similar.

If you are decidedly not cool with that, that is your prerogative. Don’t buy jewelry or patterns from me anymore if you absolutely do not want your money contributing to helping people obtain abortions. I’ve decided that this is important enough to me that I am willing to lose customers, money, and your approval. Thank you for your past patronage. You do not need to contact me to announce that you won’t support me further. I will not respond.

Thanks, everybody. I’m hoping to get back to posting jewelry again soon. I haven’t been beading much lately, but hopefully a little quiet time with my beads is my future. My 30th birthday is on July 4th, in four days. This is part of my gift to myself. Another gift to myself is not allowing comments on this post. Have a good day.
