I found these old Tibetan coins, and was drawn to their interesting shape and the designs stamped in them, thinking they would make a neat pair of earrings. I used turquoise and coral with the coins, these being popular stones in Tibetan jewelry, and wrapped them with sterling silver wire. I didn't want to cash in on the Tibetan culture by using their media popularity to sell my work, though, and came up with this solution. I am donating half of the proceeds to the Tibetan Healing Fund (the other half covers materials). They have a childrens fund, which helps supply books written in the Tibetan language, school improvements and health and maternal wellness care for rural Tibetans.
If you are interested in these earrings, you can find them on my Etsy shop. Just click on the link at the bottom of this page. Thanks for stopping by! ~Pippi
I have always loved making things with my hands. It has always amazed me that I am able to take an image in my mind and make it come into form. Like magic!
I will never have enough time to create all the wonderful things waiting to come to life from my imagination, but you can see a few of the lucky ones that actually get made here.
I hope they bring a bit of joy to your day!
Thanks for looking!
