New beginnings, Charity and experimentation

As some of you may know, Hillary Wilson, our artist and proprietor announced the opening of a new high end jewelry business. Many of you may be wondering what this means for Happy Hippy Jewelry. This means that we can re-focus on what we originally started doing: fun and affordable Hippy jewelry. For a while Hippybeads tried to take a turn for the serious, and quite frankly, it doesn't suit us well. Now that Hillary has an outlet for creating things that are high quality and formal, she can help return Happy Hippy back to it's original spirit of experimentation, creativity and artsy shenanigans.
In that spirit, Hillary has recently been working on some new and unusual pieces.

The first one
is different in style than many of Happy Hippy's other pieces, however it marks a return to using some re-purposed materials and odds and ends to create something surprising and beautiful.

The second one isn't complete yet. Hillary is creating a unique piece for Arty Party 2009, an annual art auction fund raiser for Birmingham AIDS Outreach (more on that in another post). It's still a work in progress, but we wanted to give you a sneak preview:
