27 December 2010 Can You Believe These Beads? Posted by: Caitlin Leutwiler | 1 comment | Share: Voila! Defenders supporter Joyce White has completed her handmade clay bead necklace – and it measures more than 2,000 feet! This necklace, weighing in at just under 200 lbs, was handmade one bead at a time and hand assembled. Joyce began crafting a beaded necklace in June of this year, after seeing heartbreaking images of oiled wildlife in the Gulf. She plans to auction off the necklace and then donate the proceeds to Defenders in the effort to support animals that continue to be impacted by the Gulf oil disaster. It’s one thing to hear about a necklace that long, but to see it is another! Check out this video to see the necklace in its entirety. For more information, please visit the Clay Bead A Thon page on Facebook. See how Defenders is working to help wildlife impacted by the Gulf oil disaster.
