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.

Beth Emery--you are here!
thank you so much for taking the time to visit my little slice of blogland. thanks for your consideration in this matter.


  1. These are both lovely, but I know my daughter would love "Soaring" as she's recently fallen in love :). I would like to bid $20, though I wish I could afford more. Good luck.

  2. Both pieces are beautiful, but the "love" pendant really calls to me! I'll bid $25 - this is amazing what you all are doing!

  3. I'm so excited I'm still in the running!!! I just love "Soaring" so much!!


i heart you back!
