Artist Burned out of Home and Studio Wants to Work

$8,714 of $100,000 goal

Raised by 113 people in 19 days
I don't even own a teaspoon anymore. All I have collected since I lost almost everything in my 1976 fire in San Francisco. I have collected Rare Discontinued Swarovski Crystal for my work for many years. These can not be replaced. I want to get back to work but don't have a clue where yet and how. I love my work and it keeps me happy to be able to make things that I ship world wide to many people. I make Angels out of Swarovski crystal and had the largest collection of Swarovksi hand made items on Ebay and Etsy with thousands of wonderful customers over the years.
I will need to rebuild everything from the ground up. A household, and a new studio.
Thank you for your consideration.
Kind Regards, Lilli

Hello Check in time. I posted an album of my escape with the kitties from the Camp Fire. It was a scary two and a half hour ride with flames on both sides and I was running out of gas. You can see the whole album here.

I am actively looking for the next place to call home and to set up a studio to work in again.
I want to thank each and every one that has contributed to my fund to help me make this hard transition. Much Love to All <3

I wanted to let people know how I am spending my donations. So far I have bought a pair of good walking shoes, socks, some clothes from Walmart and Amazon. Cosmetics so I feel better about myself. Shampoo, soap, tooth care products, Blankets, cat food and beds for the kitties. I have also made a couple of essential tools for my work a new camera and I have ordered a new laptop. Other little things are a hat, warm jacket, pants since it is freezing already here. I also bought a water bottle, my prescriptions and other things I really need.
Thank you so much everyone that is helping me or thinking about it. This is crunch time for me. I have lost my business in the most lucrative time of the year for my business. I will need to find a new home and furnish and set up to get back to making things for sale again. <3 Here is a photo of my little roll top and the Boys looking out at the birds that used to be.

I am including a photo of some of my top selling Suncatchers so that people that do not know me see some of my work.
Please consider even a small donation on this Giving Tuesday. It will go towards me getting a place to live and back to work. Thank you everyone that has contributed and considering it. <3
