Brave Angel Reveal and Silent Auction 1...

I know that there's a lot of controversy over "pink-washing" October, but even so, I still wanted to use it as an opportunity to raise funds for breast cancer awareness and treatment.  We don't have a lot of extra money laying around, so I thought this would be a nice way for me to use my talents to help make a donation to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  We spent a lot of time researching places to donate money and found that this charity to be excellent.  CLICK HERE to take a look at their rating from Charity Navigator.

This is one of the pieces that I made to help out.  It's made of vintage Czech glass, faceted crystal rondelles, copper, fire-polished Czech glass, and a bronze bird toggle from my family at Green Girl Studios.  The necklace is approximately 22.5" inches long and depending on wrist-size, can also be worn as a bracelet.

For this auction, the bidding will start at $1!  There is no minimum reserve and there are no bidding increments.  The highest bidder in the comments is the winner!  As a thank you, we will ship the piece to the winner free of charge (to US participants).  This auction is open to international participants.  This auction will run from today (October 29th) to November 5th.  Please make sure to include your name and an email address with your bid.  The winner will be announced November 6th.  When the winner is announced, we will send a Paypal invoice for the total.  Please make sure to pay promptly.  The funds we raise will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Keep in mind that although this piece is part of a blog hop, not all of the reveals are auctions!  And some of the auctions will be going to different charities.  So please take note and make sure to read over each artist's instructions carefully, as they may vary!  More auctions will be posted throughout the day and over the weekend.  So also keep an eye out for them!  We thought this would be a fun and creative way to raise money and hope that you enjoy visiting the participating blogs.  This is a wonderful way to get holiday gifts and help with finding a cure for this disease and raise awareness for treatment and prevention.  Even if you aren't bidding, please consider hopping around and showing your support for the amazing work of all of the participants!
