I am a participating artist in this drive to contribute in the recovery effort for typhoon victims of Haiyan, Philippines. I will be offering 2 pieces of jewelery for auction- 100% of the proceeds going to CARE. This wonderful way to help comes from artist Andrew Thornton, and is an ideal way to get finished jewelry, supplies, and fineart for gifts, while *simultaneously* donating to help others. Visit the blogs of the other artists below to see more pieces you can bid on.
HOW IT WORKS: Just leave a comment on this post until Dec. 16!
Leave a comment below naming the piece you want and the price you bid for it- and come back often to see how it’s going. That’s it! Bids start today at $10, and can be for any increment after that. My auction Bidding ends Dec. 16th, since I just got back in town.
I will announce the winner here and on FB/Twitter- on Dec. 16. If your bid is the final one- you’ve won! and I will send you a Paypal invoice. (I will pay for US shipping.) As soon as you pay, I quickly donate 100% of the price to non-profit CARE who is active now in delivering medical supplies, blankets, housing, and food to displaced victims. Bidding is open to US and international residents. (Sorry, only US shipping is included.) Be sure to leave your email contact (if your avatar doesn’t have a direct link back to you- most do not, so that I can reach you when you win. It is amazing how many winners I have *not* been able to contact over the years!)
My donated pieces are inspired by the American southwest and recent travels, and I will be posting the inspirations next. Here is the first one:
Moss Memories: (Retail $42) Navajo inspired design. Hoops- peridot stone chips, turquoise heishi and slices, horn. Bali sterling silver earwires. Length from top of wire to bottom: 2.65″
1920′s Holiday Ball (below) Retail: $45
These have wonderful marcasite rounds, with built in lever-back earwires (I think the earwire is sterling, but no marks), Red wine Czech crystal rondelles, non-tarnish sterling, all atop a creamy white one inch Biwa pearl. Perfect party pair!!
