One of the most purely fun parts of working with precious metal clay is that I can create designs somewhat instantly when the whim strikes. This little hops pendant was one such design.
It came to me as just the thing for my friend Sarah for her birthday. She is half of the couple behind BeerUnion – a blog about all things beer in NYC. They are great friends and wonderful people.
They are also in demand – Sarah and Giancarlo were asked to write a book this summer called “Beer Lover’s New York: The Empire State’s Best Breweries, Brewpubs & Beer Bars.” How much fun much does that sound? All that beer! All those interesting people they’ll meet while carefully researching said beer!
So we have decided to co-brand the silver hop for purchase (in case you have a beer lover or brewing enthusiast in your life? or perhaps this describes you?). Here is Sarah’s post about the beginnings of the Blue Dot BeerUnion Hops Pendant.
