Exclamation Please consider making Team Beads in memory of Annemarie Frances, glass artist

I recently saw on a BOC FB post that one of BOC's greatest champions, Annemarie Frances, has passed away. She was a very talented glass artist and an amazing supporter of BOC while fighting her own battle with cancer. In lieu of flowers, BOC posted that her family requested donations be made to BOC.

Though I did not know her personally, I know many in the glass community who did. We are all a family of giving, talented artists who support our passions intensely. As a kindred soul, I feel compelled to honor this strong, giving young woman who was so incredibly passionate about giving to BOC. I have posted this on FB with many of my bead peep acquaintances to pass the word on. If you're interested, please make as many Team Beads (matching pairs in any colors) as you desire, and when you donate them to BOC, please just indicate on the form that they are "in memory of Annemarie Frances, amazing glass artist".

Thank you kindly from the bottom of my heart - if you feel like posting pics on FB to share with others and BOC peeps, please use #BOCTeamBeadsforAnnemarieFrances

My donation to BOC in memory of Annemarie Frances. They weren't team beads, but they're fun Halloween beads.
