Nancy is still donating a portion of her gem sales to The Devon Foundation, a non-profit organization she established after a 2008 gem hunting trip to Madagascar. While she was collecting sapphires, aquamarines, garnets, and other unique gems, she visited the Institute of GemNancy Schuring and Julie ology of Madagascar. There, she learned how $517 could change the lives of Madagascar’s women and handicapped residents who are learning gemology and lapidary, and she began to raise funds for scholarships. From Oct. 29 through 31, Nancy will host The Devon Dog Show, a benefit for the Ramapo Bergen Animal Refuge, Inc. in Oakland. Devon will feature realistic gold and enamel dog charms, bracelets, and necklaces; gold and enamel cat charms; and sterling silver cat and dog charms.
