Born This Way Foundation
Recently I designed a set of jewelry for Lady Gaga's Creative Call for Oddities Halloween Event. I love Lady Gaga so this was an amazing opportunity for me!! Her request for the event was "Think outside the box... outside the hemisphere. Things that make me go WOW!!" so it gave me a chance to design something really artsy and indulge my creative side even more than usual. Here is a collage of the jewelry set I designed and the image that inspired it...
When I was planning out that design, I decided to make a second, similar but still one-of-a-kind set for my Jewelry for Charity Program to raise money for her Born This Way Foundation. So you have a chance to own a set like the one I made for Lady Gaga and they will be the only 2 sets like this that I will ever make.
The set is comprised of a lariat necklace and pair of earrings in a Halloween theme and color scheme with black, orange, gray, purple and white.
The focal point of the necklace is a button with a photo of a haunted house and a girl's eyes peeking through the clouds up above.
The lariat is made from a double strand of black curb chain. I used CRYSTALLIZED™ - Swarovski Elements bicones and faceted crystals in black, black diamond, fire opal and purple velvet; white and purple miracle beads for their eerie glowing effect; a white glass ghost; haunted house and spider web charms; a padlock charm forms the lariat loop and there is another at the very bottom tip of the dangle charm which also includes crystals, miracle beads, a long white glass bone inspired bead pendant and a large, ornate, silver skeleton key.
The earrings are leverback style with fire opal and black crystals, white miracle beads and haunted house charms dangling at the ends.
The donation from the sale of this set will go to Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation.
Born This Way Foundation is led by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta. It was founded in 2011 in hopes of creating a more accepting society that embraces differences and celebrates individuality.
The three pillars of the Born This Way Foundation are Safety + Skills + Opportunity to create a kinder, braver world.
This global effort starts with empowering young people to promote bravery, tolerance and acceptance. Become part of the Foundation and help create a kinder society.
