Vaasvara Celebrates National Women's History Project

March is National Women's History Month and this years theme is Women's education-Women's empowerment.

This non-profit is very close to my heart and I decided to design a pendant after this year's theme and do a fundraiser for them.
This was a great learning lesson, from concept to a finished peice of jewelry and doing that within the limits of the theme. After some drawings for concept, I made a digital print of the design on Photoshop elements. Next, I created a photopolymer plate of it.

I used this plate as my texture plate to make the pendant out of bronze clay. I made this a reversible pendant with a custom texture I call eternal spirals. I decided to add a vintage brass bead to make it more feminine and vintage looking. Here is the result.

One of this pendant can be seen in the bidding for good website in the auction benefitting NWHP( National Women's History Project).
There is a limited number of pendants available for sale at National Women's History Project's webstore

Please support this fundraiser! This necklace will make a great gift for women in your life who have helped empower you through their support, encouragement and education. Or simply a beautiful keepsake for you while supporting this very important non-profit.
