An Auction for Andrew Thornton

We here at Eclectica would like to help Andrew Thornton, a fellow jewelry designer who is in need. He's recovering from a surgery and could use a little help with his medical bills.

Whenever we stop at the Green Girl Studios booth and talk to Andrew, he's always so welcoming, and he's such a sweet person. He always has a kind word to say.

This necklace and earring set was created by Irina Miech from Precious Metal Clay and dichroic glass. The chain, the clasp, all of the jump rings, the ear wires, and all of the wire used are made of sterling silver.

We hope you'll consider bidding on this lovely necklace to show some support for Andrew.

To bid on this set, please leave a comment to this entry with the amount that you are bidding. The auction will close on Sunday, November 21st, 2010. All proceeds will be sent to Andrew. The winner must pay by credit card. The opening bid is $50.
