This piece was made for Walk For Wiggly Eyes 2021. Mike from Brisbane, Australia will be riding a bike around Tasmania to raise money and awareness to find a cure for nystagmus. He is raising money for two charities, Gift of Sight, Nystagmus Network.
For this cause I have made miniature bike pendants with a tiny water bottle. The pendant is a simplified version of the bike Mike will be riding around Tasmania.
Bike dimensions 48mm wide, 33mm long.
It comes on a 50cm sterling silver chain.
For every bike pendant sold I will be donating $50 to Mike's charities of choice, splitting the donations evenly between the two. I would like to acknowledge everyone who purchases this product by adding your name to the donation, it will be listed on the Walk For Wiggly Eyes charity page. Please let me know if you wish to remain anonymous.
What is Nystagmus?
NYSTAGMUS IS A COMPLEX VISUAL IMPAIRMENT, CHARACTERISED BY INVOLUNTARY EYE MOVEMENTS, AFFECTING FOCUS AND DEPTH PERCEPTION. THE EYES APPEAR TO WOBBLE OR FLICKER FROM SIDE TO SIDE OR UP AND DOWN. NYSTAGMUS IS CAUSED BY ABNORMAL FUNCTIONING OF THE PART OF THE BRAIN WHICH REGULATES EYE MOVEMENT AND POSITIONING.
