For a good cause....

Hey all, this isn't a shoe post, but it is the time of year when we all reflect on the blessings we have and take the time to think more so of others, and besides that who doesn't need jewelry to go along with the awesome shoes we pair with our outfits??? So with that in mind I'd like to let you know about an event that wraps up tomorrow (December 20th) at 1pm.
Announcing the auction of four Random Calliope Limited Edition sets and one unreleased set.

The proceeds of this auction will assist two families who are facing unemployment during this Christmas season. Dig deep, bid generously, and take home a piece of Second Life history for your Christmas present. Bidding will be open through 1:00 PM SLT on Saturday, December 20 SLT at Random's WorthWhile Gallery in Ode.

The pieces that are available for auction span the length of Random Calliope's time in Second Life and show both his progression as an artist and his journey through Second Life. To read in depth about the pieces, please look at Pretty in Prims: A Retrospective of the Artful Visions of Random Calliope.

Items include: Spiral Dance which was inspired by Mae Best and released as a Limited Edition piece in August, 2005. The set consists of a necklace and earrings.

The Blonde Gatsby is a variation of The Gatsby which was created in honor of the opening of the Grand Ballroom in December 2005. The Grand Ballroom is now a part of the Crescent Moon Museum owned by Tayzia Abattoir and the Blonde Gatsby was the gift given to all the attendees of the rededication of the Museum in the fall of 2007. The set consists of bracelet, necklace, and earrings.

Passe Vuur, or Passion Flame, was inspired by Valadeza Anubis and released as a limited edition in May, 2006. The set includes bracelet, earrings, headpiece, and necklace.

Rendezvous made its debut as a limited edition in September, 2007. It is a truly exquisite piece that makes use of Random's traditional prim built diamond baguettes for the first time. The set includes bracelet, earrings, necklace, and ring (shown above).

Little Jimmy Brown is an unreleased set that was made at the same time Random created the one-of-a-kind Miss SL L’Oreal Paris 2007 Tiara. It is a beautiful combination of gold and diamonds that deserves to be placed around the neck of someone you truly cherish. The set includes a necklace and earrings.

Having these pieces come up for auction is truly a rare opportunity to own a piece of SL's culture created by one of its premiere citizens. None of these pieces have been available for over a year and it is hard to say if they will ever be available again. Do not miss this extraordinary chance to add to your Random Calliope collection and help two fellow SLers have a chance at a Christmas this year.

Bids can be made at the WorthWhile Gallery. In addition to this auction, 50% of the proceeds from purchases made at the gallery of Random's unlimited edition jewelry is donated to the Modest Needs charity, which assists people in short term financial need. This is an ongoing project, so always know that when you make a gift of a Random Calliope piece you not only make someone in SL happy but you are also helping people in real life communities throughout the United States.

I just went to the Worthwhile Gallery, and the Ode region is stunning! I highly recommend that everyone visits (and maybe tries to catch a few butterflies while they're there too ;) )
