Imagine you have the ability to save the lives of 15,000 dolphins per year! Well, you do! Right now, you can help complete a shocking film exposé to pressure Peruvian legislators to put a stop to the slaughter of dolphins for shark bait. You can save these sentient, thinking, friendly dolphins from a dreadful fate. Please make a donation at our crowd-funding site to help us finish this film. We already have the footage documenting the slaughter. It is the key to stopping this needless brutality. As you know, crowd-funding depends on the involvement of many people.  So do thousands of dolphins.  So please pass this along to your animal -loving friends. We all have a unique opportunity to save thousands of dolphins.  Please help. We have a matching grant that enables you to double your donation. Please contribute and make this film a reality so these dolphins can lead free, safe lives in the ocean with their families. With your help, we can expose this tragedy worldwide.

Handcrafted & Custom-Designed Jewelry

Handcrafted & Custom-Designed Jewelry

http://terratokens.com

 “The beauty of the land around me inspires me in the creation of my art. Jewelry is not just an ornament or decoration but more of an expression of our personality. Jewelry is an extended expression of who we are and how we feel.  At times we want to be serious or elegant, subtle, sometimes playful or fun, and sometimes we want to express our essential uniqueness and desire to be different. All of my jewelry designs are created with the highest quality beads, pearls, gemstones and metals collected from around the world. I think of my jewelry as a collage of vintage style embellishments, creatures and stones, crystals and pearls, hand crafted lamp work & beads.” ~ Sage Ryen, designer

“A life without stories would be no life at all. And stories bind us together, do they not, one to another, to the animals, to the land, to the past and to the present?” ~ Alexander McCall Smith (edited excerpt) “In the Company of Cheerful Women”, The No.1 Ladies Detective Agency series
