Last year, Artful Unity and our sister site, Happy Hippy Jewelry both Donated a piece to Arty Party, a fundraiser for Birmingham AIDS Outreach.
This year, We did the same thing and wanted to share our piece with you. The Hippybeads piece can be found here.
This piece was made to be eyecatching and intruiging, plain and simple (hence the name). Sometimes I seek out deeper meaning and personal expression through the pieces I make, and sometimes I just want to make something beautiful. This piece is the latter.
This piece is made from green czech glass, green crystals, and brass colored beads and findings. Throughout the necklace, I used patterns that were very similar but not the same. This is a trick I often use to make something a little more interesting. Even though you may not notice it, your eye tends to linger longer on a piece that is balanced and similar than one that is completely asymmetrical and repetitious.
We hope that you will come to Arty Party 2010 on 5-16-2010 to see our necklace and enjoy the fun!
