This Saturday I will be participating in the Spring Thaw Craft Fair. This artisan sale is being held at Re:Purpose on Gloucester Street near Bank Street. Re:Purpose is a retail store that is affiliated with Operation Come Home, an organization that works with homeless and at risk youth. Most of the works of art in the store are the creations of the youth working with operation Come Home and are made mostly from donated items. This programs helps youth develop skills, business and artistic, as well as provide a source of income. Spring Thaw will highlight these talented young artisans as well as artisans from a round the city.
This week I am taking time to work on some pieces to round out my offerings. I made this piece to highlight the gorgeous glow of copper and the incredible beauty of raw fluorite crystals. Fluorite helps the wearer focus and helps with memory.....who doesn't need that!
A beautiful hand made copper leaf is highlighted by turquoise sari silk and 2 captured raw fluorite octahedron crystals. The chain is hand made copper and the entire piece is 17".
