Well now is the chance to win yet again. For the next two weeks (between 18th Feb-3rd March) you can visit our new auction at www.rubbishtogold.com. Go on, bid; you never know, you might just win :)
All of the work on sale in this auction was created during our live performance between the 9th-13th of November 2015 at the School of Jewellery using a variety of processes including glue guns, cold connections, latex and silicones created in a high intensity environment over the course of the week. As a result, do be aware that some items may be a little delicate and need to be cared for appropriately.
Unlike our first auction, in this auction as part of JUNK: rubbish to gold Edition No.2 we have a minimum bid amount in place. This is in place for two reasons. Firstly; unlike during the first edition of JUNK: rubbish to gold, for Edition No. 2 we are exhibiting within a formal gallery structure as part of the well-established Jewellery Week in Munich, and as such it is important to reflect both the (modest) additional costs in bringing it over as well as the increased prestige in doing so and secondly; to insure that the charities are guaranteed a fair proportion of the profits of all sales of items won as a result of this second exhibition and whole new physical audience.
It is very easy to place a bid on your favourite item:
Find which item you would like and take a note of it’s number.
