Thanks everyone, for coming out to Arts on the Arcade!
Arts on the Arcade was a lot of fun today. I came home to find Hieropice’s fundraising/awareness necklace, that I designed to raise funds for the Susan G. Komen 3-Day, was featured in this social-justice-themed treasury by Theresa from TAKJewelryDesigns. It’s wonderful to have support in getting the word out there about Hieropice’s fundraising efforts; so many of us have had a loved one diagnosed with cancer, it’s a disease that warrants all of the research possible. We hope the proceeds from the sale of our Terrarium Necklace for Charity aids in the important work that the Komen Foundation does!
Recently, a customer requested a mini terrarium necklace for her sister, who has a pet pig. The customer had an existing terrarium she loved with a tree and blue eggs inside, so I created a pendant incorporating elements she mentioned with some Hieropice twists. The miniature pig was a particular challenge! The opening of the glass vial is only 3 mms wide, so creating a pig with enough signature details (a coiled tail, miniature snout, etc.) that could be maneuvered into the vial without being damaged. I’m pleased with what I created, and really hope the customer, and her sister, are happy with it!
Hieropice is back in Boston! And I’m excited for the art/craft/farmer’s market/concert series sponsored by the City of Boston, Arts on the Arcade, beginning tomorrow! Hieropice will be one of the juried art vendors, and I’ve got some pretty cool new items to debut.
Arts on the Arcade will be every Wednesday, through August 29th (so Aug. 15th, 22nd, and 29th) from 11 AM to 3 PM, in City Hall Plaza/Government Center. We’ll be under the tent, and hope to see you there!
