Wings of Hope: Changing Leaves Collection
Published Jun 18 2017 in New Collections, Philanthropy Jewelry
I am honoured to be chosen out of a group of jewelry designers to be a part of the "Wings of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation" 2017 jewelry collection.
This organization provides assistance for low income breast cancer patients who have received in the past or are currently receiving treatment at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary. Please read more about this wonderful organization on their website: Wings of Hope.
This charitable organization requested a collection that would represent Alberta. After careful thought and pulling from my experiences as an Albertan, my "Changing Leaves Collection" was created. This collection is inspired by the seasonal landscape of the beautiful forests of Alberta.
From spring to summer & fall to winter those leaves evolve representing growth, life & change.
From a bud in the spring, growth throughout our summer and eventual departure from the trees that it came from; it is those leaves that feed the ground that it was born from.
Each stage is beautiful and enchanting.
My personal appreciation of the great outdoors, love of the river valley & trails of Alberta serve as an inspiration for the Changing Leaves Collection in support of this charitable organization.
A significant portion of the sales of this jewelry collection will be donated to the Wings of Hope Breast Cancer Foundation.
