If you've always admired the intricate metal pieces from Beyond Borders that the Artful Hand gift shop has carried for years, you can feel even better about buying a piece -- or several. That's because the proceeds from each sale go directly to Haitian artisans, providing them with a living wage in a place that, since the devastating earthquake, has become even less livable. Each piece is handcrafted from 55-gallon oil drum cast-offs using only a hammer and a chisel. Pieces range from small decorative hearts and crosses to large three-dimensional scenes incorporating such imagery as birds, mermaids and flowers. The pictured piece, called "Circle of Birds" ($78), was crafted from an oil drum lid. 3408 W. Seventh St., Fort Worth. 817-738-4438.
