In addition to daydreaming of warm sandy beaches, I've been obsessing over pins. I had wanted to do a line w/ pins but always seem to be busy with something else that it wasn't until I was contacted by a repeat customer and friend who asked if I would design something special for a fundraiser that I revisited the pin idea and put my pliers into motion. My friend had a simple request for a pin in the shape of an angel. I could put my special touch on it, my own artistic expression etc. Yay!! I immediately had a vision of how I wanted the angel to look but to make it functional as a pin was a another story. After sketching several variations and playing w/ my copper wire, I had settled on a functional and fashionable sterling silver pin. Each pin is approximately 1 1/4" wide by 2 1/4" high. As an extra touch, I want to dangle a small orange Swarovski crystal from the halo to represent the fight against leukemia. The crystals, which are a very nice shade of orange, have been ordered but I couldn't wait to share the pin w/ you. So just imagine the crystal dangling there and I'll update the picture when the crystals arrive. More information regarding the fundraiser will follow as this is private fundraiser to benefit a local family affected by leukemia. If you would like to help this cause by purchasing a pin, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Each pin, with crystal, is $25 (tax included) with a portion of each sale being donated.
So angels aside, I also made a handful of fibulas. These are larger and would look great on a scarf or shawl. Prices and materials vary so if you'd like more information or would like to see more designs, please refer to my website at http://www.hillcrestjewelrydesign.com/ or contact me at the above e-mail address. Thank you for reading and wherever you are I hope you are warm and cozy. ~Heather
