Heart Gallery pins


the raw sterling silver castings


mid-production- adding the epoxy resin


the finished product

These are sterling silver and epoxy resin pins I made for the Heart Gallery of NJ. The Heart Gallery is a non-profit organization "dedicated to raising awareness for foster children available for adoption." They just had a photography opening at the Liberty Science Center in NJ consisting of 100 portraits of children waiting to be adopted. As a sister to five adopted siblings, I find this so moving. There are so many kids out there that just want to be loved and to feel secure within a family. Wishing happy homes to all of these amazing kids!

Oh Tere, I love these! I'm sure they'll be a success for the gallery and hopefully call awareness to the need for families for kids waiting in foster care. You are so dear.
