Share the Love - Chrysalis Designs

This weeks Featured Artisan is Regina Plummer McDonald, better known as Gina, owner and designer at Chrysalis Designs by RM. Gina has beautiful creations and are all true works of art! 

She currently resides in Chattahoochee, Florida with her husband, Larry in a small house outside of Chattahoochee surrounded by woods and wildlife.

Gina is an avid supporter of REFUGE HOUSE, an organization who serves battered women and their children and victims of sexual violence. She herself is a survivor of domestic violence. She designs and makes a special line of jewelry (T.A.I.S.I.) that specifically benefits this worthwhile organization. Forty percent of the proceeds from the sale of these pieces is donated to the REFUGE HOUSE so that they can continue to serve the entire "Big Bend" area. She also is happy to donate her work to other charitable organizations and just recently made a donation to Covenant Hospice for their Gala in June. She is also more than happy to give her time and skills to any charitable organization to teach a class and donate the proceeds from the tuition generated or donate a piece for an auction or raffle. As she puts it, "I am truly and richly blessed and believe in giving back to the community."
