I LOVE all of Patricia Healey's work. She is a true artist. Her copper pendants and findings are simply beautiful. I especially love her leaves.
This company is fantastic.
I love this focal point. I can see so many uses to spruce up our fall outfits. The copper tone is beautiful, and has brought out many colors in certain scarfs.
I am involved in fundraising for a nonprofit, nature and art after school program which is offered free to students and is totally supported by community donations. (Our program is sponsored by our community arts organization.)
We hold an annual fundraiser for it, where we ask guests to donate funds to support the program. (Not an auction or item sales.) Those who give at the higher levels recieve a necklace as a thank you gift.
We have started purchasing our pendant items from Artbeads.com and have had a wonderful results!! Everyone loves them and we have been able to increase the donation amounts because of these gifts. We have had folks give an extra donation just to have a necklace! They are beautifully crafted and are representative of our program.
This year we used the copper leaf and those that donated at the highest level received the leaf with a gold star attached. It was a huge hit! In fact we ran out of them.
We also love the fact that they are made by in the U.S. by a NW artist which is wonderful since we are an arts organization.
Artbead.com has been wonderful to work with. I ordered these rather late and they held the order so I could pick them up at their office. The quality, selection and service has been terrific!
