< 24 hours to drape yourself in beauty

Gorgeous, eh? Remember that kitty I told you about earlier? Well this amazing necklace from Whimsy Beading is being auctioned on his behalf:

"Kelly Graves
In the course of my work with Grey on the Awesome Box, I created two custom pieces. One the Indie Style necklace, which you can see here:

Two, the Indie Style Star earrings, here:

After all the information broke, I had planned on taking these items apart, due to the negative associations people would have with the Awesome Box, but the poor innocent colors themselves never hurt anyone, so I haven't done it yet.

Instead, I've decided to let them do some good. As some of you know, Victoria Luna, the brilliant mind behind Persephone Minerals has taken in a diabetic foster kitty, Ghost. Caring for a sick kitty is not for the faint of heart of light of wallet, and she needs help.

So here's the deal. I'm putting these two items on auction, with the proceeds, less the Paypal fees and materials costs going to Victoria. If I were to sell the earrings and necklace in my shop, they would cost $40 retail, including the shipping, so that's the starting bid.

EMAIL your bid to
with the subject line "Ghost Auction" with your bid on the set.

Terms: The bidding closes at 9 am EST (Eastern Standard Time) tomorrow, Friday 1-20-12, and ONLY email bids will be accepted. In other words, don't post here and expect your bid to count. I have to have it in email, partly to protect us both. Once the bidding closes, I'll Paypal invoice the highest bidder, and that bidder has two days to send payment before I go to the next bidder. As soon as the payment clears, the money will go on its way to Victoria via Paypal.

I will only sell this necklace and earrings as a set, and this is the only set that will ever be made in this colorway, EVER.

Because I know tensions are still high and people are afraid of being burned, I will answer any questions you've got, and I'm almost always within reach of email or Etsy convo. But know this - if I fail in my responsibilities to send the auction funds on to Victoria, the God of Cats will take horrible revenge on me, probably by having Henry Monster Dammit pee in every pair of Danskos I own. I've got a lot to lose here if I don't see it through."

I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
