custom Jade Pendant handmade in 18k gold and set with Canadian diamonds. This one-of-a-kind piece was created for a fundraising event to help benefit Hamilton Madison House. A non-profit settlement house established in 1898 to foster the well being of vulnerable populations in the Chinatown/Lower East Side neighborhoods. Chinatown & the LES is my home, and the place where I have grown my business for the past 10 years. I have witnessed, first hand, how HMH provides support to the community and beyond through their efforts each day in serving others. This piece is a symbol of my personal connection to my neighborhood as a local jeweler, and my appreciation for the continuous impact Hamilton Madison House makes in our community. I believe in the power to think globally, act locally www.hamiltonmadisonhouse.org . . . . #nymade #thinkgloballyactlocally #jadeite #jadependant #jadebi #18kgold #Hamiltonmadisonhouse #canadiandiamonds #diamondpendant #handmade #jewellery #jewelryadd #futureheirlooms #micropave #pavediamonds
Better late than never... A huge thanks to Sunnyvale, Sheer Mag, Haram & everybody who came out to support this years 9/11 benefit show. From this concert alone, we were able to raise, and donate $4700 to The Hamilton-Madison House Child Care Center. Throughout 2016, we also played/organized benefit concerts for The Sam Vincent Foundation, as well as The Coalition For The Homeless, and deeply thank and appreciate all bands/organizers/people involved. 2017 is coming up #toxicstate #hankwoodandthehammerheads #samvincentfoundation #hamiltonmadisonhouse

Today is a sad day a great man passed away. This man was partly responsible for me working with kids. He took a chance on me and gave me my own program to run. For that im forever grateful. So if you met me during my adult years its a strong chance that you met me at Hamilton Madison House. If you met me there you were either a participant (afterschool, summer camp, or teen program), was a co-worker, and/or was one of my staff. Today although im sad, im gonna celebrate his life and what he shared with me. So for all of the people who came to NYC's DJ class, the Healthy Cooking Classes, Teen Parenting Classes, Afterschool, Summer Camp, Thanksgiving dinners, Adult Basketball night, trips with the young people, and so many other things...know that Frank Modica had his hand in all things that we tried to do with the community. Say a prayer for his family tonight. Frank we love you.
