Charity Art Auction - contribution by Luthien of Pimp & Paint


the gals at inspiration avenue have worked tirelessly these couple of months organizing an art charity auction for the organization angel faces. angel faces is a place, a sanctuary for adolescence girls who have facial and body disfigurements due to burns. angel faces empower these girls through counseling and therapy (mostly in the form of art) and help them find their confidence and their place back in the society.

in support of this cause, i have donated a piece of handmade neck adornment aptly named estella ... which means hope. goodness knows we all need hope, but most importantly, we need to give these girls hope for a better future.

essentially a mixed media piece, this heart pendant is made from blended polymer clay, hammered aluminum wire, nylon coated artistic wire and acrylics. the cord is a mix of metal chain, fiber, artistic wires, findings and glass beads.

the concept, color, composition, have all been designed to inspire hope and light.

"the heart that was once broken is once again mended, and though it might never be what it used to be ... that does not mean that it cannot take a different form, a more positive form that is richer, stronger and perfectly beautiful inside out"

the starting bid for estella is 16USD


- this auction will go live from the 7th march and end on the 14th march at 12 noon EST

- the bidding will take place HERE on the inspiration avenue blog

- your bids should be in US Dollars only, with a minimum of 1USD increments (cents will not be entertained)

- please place your bids in the comments section of this post

- please include your name and email address in your bidding (and of course your bid too :) so that we may send you a paypal invoice should you win the item

- please come back to your bid item often to check if anyone has made another bid, and re-bid if you wish to
