Artists Helping Artists

Artists Helping Artists Silent Auction

Once again, several artists in the blog community have decided to come together to help a fellow artist in need. 

Auction now closed
it affects us all when one of our company is visited by tragedy. i have never experienced anything like what our fellow artist is experiencing, but i want to help anyway. so i am putting up two things to bid on. sorry about the photos. it was late by the time i was able to take photos yesterday and the lighting is a bit wonky.

the first piece is entitled 'soaring', reminding the wearer to fly with your heart open, or as my niece would say, "bloom your heart open." the chain is antiqued copper, the wings are from PalomaAntigua, and the heart is Swarovski. it is 18" long. the heart is about an inch long. the wire is Parawire, antique bronze. all findings are antiqued copper. the wings in person are a bit whiter, the heart a bit lighter--more of a siam than a red magma. let's start the bidding at $15US.

the second piece is a component i made. it's copper with a lovely los patina that you can't really see in this photo. the stone is blue lace agate and the words are 'love will find a way', from one of my favorite songs. the pendant is 1 3/8"x3/4". i see it layered with a ceramic piece or a lillypilly mother of pearl component. let's start the bidding at $8US.

this auction is not available to international bidders.

the auction runs from today, december 22 to december 28 at midnight.

Would you like to be the winning bidder?

Please leave a comment along with your bid, stating 'soaring' if you want to bid for the necklace, or 'love' if you wish to bid for the pendant. 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.

Many people are auctioning items to help out! Please visit these other artists below and place your bid!

i have been feeling terribly uninspired lately. haven't made hardly any jewelry... and my beads call to me but... i don't know. i think it's because i've been so sick for so long. medical bills are rolling in and i'm at a loss. without my job (i had to quit because i'm so sick) i don't know where the money is going to come from. and they still don't know what's wrong with me. i'm so... frustrated, i guess. and that does not bring out the muse. i've even been having trouble reading. can't get into how their life sucks because there is too much suckage here. i hate being negative here on my blog, so i haven't been posting, but then that wears at me with guilt. argh! poor, poor bethiboo. that's what it feels like. a pity party of one. and i hate it when i get down. so. that's all i'm gonna say about it and i hope you'll forgive me for indulging. let's move on, shall we?

becca and i made a record amount at the farmer's market bazaar! and then a week later a wonderful lady who bought one of my necklaces at the watershed bazaar called and wanted to get two more necklaces she'd seen at the farmer's market bazaar! omg! so it was really great to end the season that way.

this is a piece i made in metals last year. it's sterling silver, copper, and the stones are labradorite. love that stone.
