Helping Hand Pendant Raffle to Benefit Vermont Flood Victims

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.
The pendant's value is $150.
All proceeds will directly benefit Vermont craftspeople hurt by Hurricane Irene (through the Craft Emergency Relief Fund [CERF]).
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
