2019 Half Marathon Finishers Necklace

A message from the Artist, Denise Harrison

“In today’s world, we so often find ourselves overwhelmed by the hectic routine of daily life and overlook the present. I like to think the process I use in creating my jewelry causes us to pause and take a moment and to focus on the now.  My distinctive process uses photography combined with traditional printmaking and metalsmithing techniques to create textural pieces of jewelry that tell a story and hold memories.

For the 2019 Bend Happy Girls necklace, I wanted to create a piece that would remind the finisher of some of the beauty they may have experienced while running the race.  I started with the roundabout art found at Reed Market and Bond and took some artistic liberty and centered Mt. Bachelor in the natural frame it created.

We are extremely lucky here in Central Oregon to be surrounded by such amazing natural beauty.  Let’s all make sure we take the time to truly appreciate that good fortune.”
