Thanks so much to all who purchased raffle tickets for my Helping Hand Pendant. I'm so pleased to announce that we raised $1940 and I'm going to make it an even $2000 and send it to the Craft Emergency Relief Fund [CERF]). All the proceeds will directly benefit Vermont craftspeople hurt by Hurricane Irene.
And the winner is...............Terry Palmer of Lafayette, LA.
Congratulations Terry and to everyone for giving a helping hand!
Hurricane Irene's flood waters devastated vermont on August 28th. My own town in Central Vermont was particularly hard hit. My family's farm is high on a hill and we were not effected but many of our neighbors lost everything. I'm raffling off this "Helping Hand" pendant hoping to help in a small way.
This sculpted brass hand is very gestural. It features 2 hammered sterling bracelets and 1 made of twisted red brass. It hangs on an 18" sterling chain with a handmade sterling s-hook. The hand is 1 3/8" long.
First pay using the Paypal button below. As soon as you do, your name will be put in a hat.The winner will be drawn on September 28th (that date will mark 1 month since Irene). The winner's name will be announced on my blog and the piece will be mailed that day.
You can choose 1 ticket for $10 or 3 tickets for $25
