art charity auction at inspiration avenue

the time is now!

the gals at inspiration avenue have worked tirelessly these couple of months organizing an art charity auction for the organization angel faces. if you have read about this event in my earlier post, you will know that the organization 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 use 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 on the inspiration avenue blog
