Artists Helping Artists Silent Auction

Winners are:
Copper - Mags $35.00
Bracelet - Cathy Obbema $55
Thank you all for your bids and to the winners I thank you both very much!

Several artists in the blog community have decided to band together
to help a fellow artist in need.  

I have decided to auction off 2 items. 

 Item 1 is this bracelet which I made for the Lorelei and Shannon's Lima Bead Challenge. It features handmade beads by Genea and MaryAnn Carroll. It also has Vintaj natural brass, czech glass, wood, and ribbon. Value is $40
The bidding on this is starting at $15.
To place a bid for this write BRACELET and your bid amount.

The second item, or items, up for bid are these handmade -by me- copper components. 

(sorry for the sad looking photos I was at work in the salon all day and have no light so I took these on my iphone on the kitchen counter)

The horse pendant is huge, measuring over 2-1/2 inches high. The others are smaller coming in at 1-1/2 inches and less. Value is over $35.
The bidding on these is starting at $15.
To place a bid for these write COPPER and your bid amount.

Please leave a comment along with your bid. If you are the winning bidder, you will receive an invoice after the close of the auction. There must be a way to contact you. If you have email preferences turned off in your profile, please leave your email.

I'd really appreciate it if you could let people know that my shop ( is donating all its proceeds to this cause through Christmas. If anyone would like to offer a donation and receive an item from my shop, they're welcome to do so by convoing me. I want to incentivize giving on behalf of this wonderful person and her family.
Please spread the word if you would.
