Raffle Earrings - Claudia Gutsch
Ticket sales for the Jewelry for Wildlife Fundraiser are now closed. Winners will be randomly selected and notified by November 7th, 2023.
Claudia's asymmetrical earrings are one of nine pieces available in the Jewelry for Wildlife Fundraiser. There is a maximum of 100 tickets available per piece, with the last day to buy tickets being October 31st. Winners will be randomly selected and then notified by Tuesday, November 7th, 2023.
Earring Specs: These unique one-of-a-kind earrings are hand crafted in sterling silver and feature responsibly sourced gemstones donated by Columbia Gem House.
Size: Approximately 55mm in overall length.
Featured gemstones: 10mm Cortez Pearls®, 4x2mm Nigerian Tourmaline Baguettes, 3mm Neon Green Beryl Triangles, and 3mm Grape Garnet® rounds.
As a final touch, the silver is blackened to allow the vibrant stones to pop even more. Claudia says that many of her pieces are oxidized to enhance textures and develop more character over time.
About the Project: This project is a fundraising raffle benefiting wildlife rescue, rehabilitation and research along the Sonoran Coast of Mexico. 100% of ticket sales will be donated to CRRIFS, a non-profit that works directly with the Cortez Pearl Farm; the very same farm where the pearls you see in Claudia's piece come from.
