This. I don't even know where to begin on this, but it has to be one of the most exciting things to happen to me since I started blogging! Let me introduce you guys to the Sacred Heart Medallion Necklace.
About 6 months ago, I got an email from the vivacious, lovely, insanely inspiring and all-around amazing Vanessa Mooney. She asked me if I wanted to collaborate on a piece that would make the world a little more awesome. Of course before you could say "Holy crap" I was already bouncing emails back and fourth with her, discussing inspirations and our favorite charities to give a portion of the proceeds of our design to.
We decided to create a necklace inspired by Mexican milagros, which are folk charms that are used for healing and protection, and the symbol of a sacred heart, which Vanessa designed herself. The sacred Heart is one of my favorite symbols not only because of its powerful shape, but also becauseit transgresses many cultures as a symbol for strength, spirituality and passion. I couldn't be more excited about it, the faceted pearls make the piece precious and wonderful when contrasted with the strong medallion, but the best part has to be that 10% of the proceeds from each sale of the necklace will go towards Artists for Human Rights (AFHR), which is a non-profit organization that is committed to upholding the Declaration for Human Rights through creative expression and artistry.
I hope you guys like 'em! If you'd like to get your hands on one of these beauts, head on over here.
