Head, Heart,Hand Series Statement Pins

The Head,Heart,Hand series of statement pins to wear are a new line of jewelry that I have begun to design and fabricate.
 The idea began several years ago when I first saw and was delighted by beads carved/shaped into heads portraying cultural figures. The very first one that I had to have was a beautiful lampwork Medusa. I held that bead for years! It was so stately,so powerful, wise and scary! Ten years later, wanting to make a birthday present for a longtime friend that head would be perfect. And so the Medusa Pin was birthed. My friend exclaimed over the pin, saying it was so perfect for her right now and she wears it to staff meetings and other times dealing with difficult situations.
 This line of pins is designed to inspire the confidence boost we all sometimes really need. 
Second in the series-Hawaiian/polynesian...."KU" the first creative force. 

Latest in the series- Chinese- carved bone- "Fu-Shen"/ Hotei - Happiness
