This holiday season, artist Yvonne Yao, founder of YVIE, has chosen to create unique designs for “Gift to Empower”, 24 days of unique one-of-a-kind daily designs for a cause. From December 1 – 24, 50 percent of all proceeds from Gift To Empower will be donated to Humanity Unified International, a charitable organization dedicated to lifting vulnerable populations out of poverty through education, food security programs and economic opportunities. The proceeds will be invested into a women’s farming cooperative project in Rwanda that will provide health, rights and business education along with all the tools, training and inputs necessary for 100 smallholder farmers to rise above poverty.
DAY 5 –I Dream of Tibet
Yao’s inspiration for this piece…
To visit Tibet has been one of my dreams ever since I saw 7 Years in Tibet as a teenager. The beautiful, raw, and wild sweeping landscape–plus exotic culture– charms my imagination till this day. Featuring old Tibetan naga conch shell beads with crushed turquoise inlay and Nepal brass beads with inset coral and turquoise. The necklace is decorated with pyrite, garnet and Swarovski crystals, and gracefully hangs on a 14k gold-filled hand-wired chain of faceted sea green adventurine. Sold with matching earrings as a set.
