I'm pleased to say that the necklace I donated to Haiti by Hand has been purchased and is now finding it's way to a new home. I think that Rebecca Sower's efforts will be ongoing and so I will come up with another piece sometime soon, but in this little meanwhile, I've just finished and listed these pieces. I am really pleased with all of them, but the Maltese Cross really sets my heart pattering. The combination of lapiz and aquamarines seems to really generate some interesting energy. Okay so I'm a little nuts but I kid you not, the piece really hums for me.
I found the hand carved bone piece recently and the brooch casing was somehow too huge for it, so I reworked it and will create a reliquary from the other part of the brooch....that's going to be fun!
I can't believe the color separation in the slag on this Nouveau Pendant. It almost looks like picture agate.

Haiti by Hand has been organized by Rebecca Sower , and if you are a craftista with a heart to donate, please consider doing so. But this is Rebecca's story and it's best you hear it from her.
When I think about how much difference a small amount of money can make to these people, it really amazes me to think how we can deeply affect and even profoundly change lives with our art.
