Ring a Day auctions expected to run throughout February on eBay.
British jewellery designers have come together to create and donate unique rings to an online auction that will raise funds for the victims of the earthquake in Haiti.
The auction, which was created and organised by contemporary craftswoman Thomasin Durgin, has already pulled together 32 designers for the event who are donating several rings each to the “Ring a Day” event. It is expected to run for a month on auction web site Ebay, beginning on February 1.
Auctions for each ring in the collection will last 7 days. One or two rings will be listed each day, and they will continue on a rolling basis until all of the rings are sold. 100% of the proceeds will go to the GlobalGiving Relief Fund for Haiti Earthquake.
Among the artists that have already pledged their support and donated rings are:
Carrie Nunes, who has offered her beautiful, dimensional sterling silver rose ring. The auction for this ring will begin 2/5 and end 2/12.
Elizabeth Rosas has created a tree bud ring. “This ring is cast from a tree bud then soldered on to an adjustable hammered ring band. A 14k gold ball is soldered in the center,” she explains. The auction for this ring will begin 2/6 and end 2/13.
Kathryn Cole has given a lovely sterling silver band ring with pierced butterfly motif. This is the 15th ring that Kathryn has made for the Ring a Day challenge. The auction for this ring will begin 2/7 and end 2/14.
And Teresa Smith, who has donated a sterling silver ring that features a cultured pearl in a gorgeous water cast setting. The auction for this ring will begin 2/3 and end 2/10.
