-- New York, NY (PR LOG) November 19, 2012— SR, the Brooklyn-based wood atelier founded by artist Stefan Rurak, is pleased to introduce The Sandy Spike, an exclusive series of limited edition handmade pendants. The solid wood Spike pendants will feature reclaimed wood rescued from Hurricane Sandy in an effort to raise money for The Mayors Fund, a humanitarian organization that is currently providing relief to those affected by the storm. Orders can be placed via email and telephone starting on Monday, November 19, 2012.
SR will craft a limited edition set of solid wood Spike pendant necklaces numbered from 1 to 29, a number selected to honor October 29, 2012, the date the historical storm devastated New York City and surrounding boroughs. These made-to-order necklaces, handcrafted by Stefan Rurak himself, will be designed personally for each client keeping with the tradition of SR. The Spikes will be available in multiple sizes, styles, and designs. When asked about the project, Rurak explained “by creating a piece that can be worn, and is less time consuming to produce than a piece of furniture, we are able to begin the effort to support the victims of the storm immediately. Also, it is a wearable piece therefore creating awareness.” Rurak and Liz Ash, the Creative Director of SR, came up with the concept behind the SR Spike during a late night phone call soon after the storm. Ash comments “the spike represents a stake, a symbol for both the severe impact the storm had on the city, and the inevitable mark it will leave in the memories of many.”
