Artists Helping Artists Silent Auction

Several artists in the blog community have decided to band together to help a fellow artist in need. 
This auction will be a little different, we will have two necklaces up for grabs. First off you have a necklace by the uber talented Lori Anderson of Pretty Things Blog
Necklace made with beads by Sue Beads, sterling silver, and a Thai silver dragonfly perched on one side.  The necklace can be worn as short as you like, up to 18" by hooking the clasp into any of the links.
Here is a nice Closeup shot of the stunning necklace and it's delicate treasures!

To bid for Lori's necklace put the name LORI and then the bid, this will help us keep the two auctions separate. Starting bid for this item $20

Next you have a necklace by me! 
A large Aventurine Donut bead, wrapped with a Dragonfly from Vintaj linked to Crystals and chain! Looks amazing on! Stunning colour I just could not capture on the screen! You will not regret bidding on this piece! You will receive it just in time for Christmas so you can offer it as a gift for someone you love! ...or keep it for yourself ;)
 I can adjust the chain, but right now it fits 18inches. Please place your bids in the comments section, bids close Sunday December 11th at midnight. We need to collect the funds right away to send them off to our friend in need. Remember to think generously! It is Christmas after all...

To bid for my necklace put the name SKYE and then the bid, this will once again help us keep the two auctions separate. Starting bid for this item is $20

Please share this auction with your friends and family, help us raise as much money as we can for the fund!! 

Thanks in advance!

Marie and Lori

The grasshoppers sitting with the sue beads looks absolutely gorgeous and the colors used in the neck piece are also very nice.
