Hannah shared that most of her designs done for Toast end up being a little quirky. "I like to make faces; that’s just where my head goes", she says. To complete the piece, Hannah wax carved and cast sterling silver eyes and nose for the center of the face. An elegant and fun piece great for daily wear.
About the Project: This project is a fundraising raffle benefiting wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and research along the Sonoran Coast of Mexico. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to CRRIFS, a non-profit that works directly with the Cortez Pearl Farm; the very same farm where the pearl you see in Hannah's piece comes from.
