Mind Matters is a non-profit organization that provides mentoring to high school students from low-income families. With chapters located in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, and Portland, OR, they reach children across the country and help to change their lives.
I beleive strongly in the power of education and found out about this organization only recently, when I was sent information about a silent auction they're having. I was thrilled to participate and made a necklace speficically for the occassion.
Man has long been compelled by roses. The most popular flower, they are use to show emotion in the most passionate, yet sophisticate way.
In nature, green roses are captivating. As green symbolizes life, growth and constant renewal the green rose is the very example of these forces. It brings to mind the newness of spring and the reward of its showers.
This necklace is comprised of Green rose beads, in the style of ancient Asian lacquer. They are complimented by smooth and faceted black onyx beads. The rich dark tones showcase the delicate tones in the carved beads.
