The Sparkle for Sandy Relief Auction is a remarkable collaboration of over 90 jewelry designers and a New York jewelry retailer who pulled it all together. The designer jewelry is being auctioned to help Waves for Water, an organization on the ground helping victims of Hurricane Sandy that hit the East Coast with such devastation in October. Sparkle for Sandy launched last week, and continues through this Thursday, December 6th, with 100% of proceeds going directly to Waves for Water!
When looking through the list of designers who have generously donated amazing jewelry pieces, I noticed a large number of names from the Contemporary Jewelry Design Group. This is an organization dedicated to the promotion of independent jewelry artisans and designers, and their members are dedicated to the highest ethics and integrity in the jewelry industry. Many of the items donated by CJDG members are one-of-a-kind jewelry handmade in their artisan studios.
Here are items donated by CJDG Members. Check out the beautiful jewelry, click on the items to go bid, and see all of the amazing offerings on the Sparkle for Sandy website! You could end up with a great value, give a spectacular gift, and help Waves for Water make an impact in the areas most affected by Sandy.
