Anne Dale is using her creative talents to raise money for fishing businesses affected by the oil spill on the Gulf Coast.
Dale is selling shrimp boot earrings and other Gulf-related items and giving the proceeds to struggling businesses in the area.
"All of the pieces of the collection, My Home-A Way of Life, will be donated to charitable causes, ranging from $5 to $20 on each piece," Dale said.
Dale is also teaming up with a local Creole bean company owner and music artist to help spread the word.
The trio not only want to raise money for fishermen, but also want to spread the word that there are still safe areas to fish in the Gulf.
All three believe selling the jewelry is one more way they can help do their part in the clean up and rebuilding efforts.
"Its not about jewelry, we're just using what we do to catapult this music, jewelry and food," Eric Newman, with Blue Runner Beans, said.
Newman also explained that all three of them can help encourage people to start fishing again by putting a positive spin on the situation.
