Just a note that BeadBabe.com and Bead & Button Magazine have begun their annual online auction to benefit breast cancer research.

Ten to twenty different items - many jewelry - will be offered each week of the auction until all donated items have been won.

Here's the URL to check out this week's listings:


The auction has been offered since 2000, with proceeds increasing steadily each year. Last year's auction generated $15,837.12 for the Foundation.

It's a great way to find some fun new jewelry for your collection and benefit a great charity at the same time.

Good luck bidding!
