This was made for our friends the Hollingsworths. We first met them at the New York State Sheep and Wool Festival in Rhinebeck, New York. Hawk, as his friends call him, likes to wear larger pendants with unusual motifs, so he gave me pictures to work from and these unique pieces are what we ended up creating.


Staten Island Hospice Angel Pins


This lovely pin was created from a line drawing sent to us by Elvira LaRocca, a member of the Staten Island Hospice staff.  She designed this angel pin herself and we translated her drawing into metal!. This organization does wonderful work , as do all hospices. These stylized angel pins are given as gifts to the family members of those in hospice care as well as to others associated with this hospice organization.

Michigan Fiber Festival Pins


These items were commissioned in 2007  by the festival committee and they sell these to help raise money for the event. They are wonderful remembrances of the show.

They wanted both a pin and a keychain with the same design.  For those not familiar with the textile arts this is a niddy-noddy which is a tool used to wind skeins from newly spun yarn.
