I'm an animal fanatic
Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) June 29, 2008
A 57 year old grandmother has just designed her 4th piece of jewelry exclusively for the ASPCA online store.
Merry Rosenfield, who co-owns the internet business http://www.themagiczoo.com with her husband Ed, has been designing original animal themed jewelry for over 20 years.
"I'm an animal fanatic," said Rosenfield, who lives in Florida surrounded by native lizards, raccoons, possums and a yard full of the neighbor's cats.
In 2007 Rosenfield was approached by Stephen Dercole, director, ASPCA Merchandise, about creating a new line of logo jewelry. "I was delighted," said Rosenfield.
She donated her design time, estimated at between 20 to 25 hours and created 3 initial designs. That was in 2007. This year she has added 2 more designs to their collection.
Merry's newest logo design, a beautiful paw print in gleaming sterling silver, can be seen on the ASPCA website, alongside her earlier work.
"We're always looking for ways to extend our brand and mission," said ASPCA President & CEO Ed Sayres, "and Merry's whimsical and charming jewelry are a great way to do just that. Her love for animals clearly shines through in these signature pieces, and we are very fortunate that she has been so giving of her time and talents to the ASPCA."
"I strongly believe that it's the responsibility of artists to use their gifts to help this world," says Rosenfield, echoing the words of her late daughter Cedar Bennett, a talented young artist who sadly passed away in 2001. "Cedar loved animals. She dedicated her life towards making this a better place for both people and animals."
