    You will receive a sterling silver MOTHER’S RIGHT necklace. These necklaces are handmade by Michelle Hartney, and are small versions of the hospital gowns being made for the performance piece and installation. Each necklace was created by carefully folding a small sheet of sterling silver into nine folds, creating a layered triangle, which mimics the hospital gowns that will be folded nine times during the performance piece. Each pendant hangs on a twenty inch sterling silver chain, comes with a card about the project, and makes a wonderful gift for mothers. You also will receive a personal thank you note from the artist, with a piece of the hand silk-screened fabric from the gowns used in this project sewn onto it, as well as your name being listed as a donor on the MOTHER’S RIGHT project page on Michelle Hartney's website and on AKArt Advisory’s website.
