In Memory of Mieko Takahashi Shull and Lucia Gulino

The Etsy MetalClay Team has created two different beautiful charm bracelets to honor the memories of two of our teammates who recently passed on—Mieko Takahashi Shull and Lucia Gulino. We are raffling these bracelets and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charities in their memory. The proceeds will be split 50/50 between World Vision—Mieko's favorite charity, and an art scholarship in Lucia's name. 

We are sorrowful at the loss of these two beautiful and talented women who were taken from us too soon. The Etsy MetalClay Team is a close-knit, global group of metal clay artists with the common ground of having an Etsy shop. We support each other with advice, tips, friendship, laughter, and sometimes tears. Sadly, this time it is tears. 

We, as a group, felt that the best way to honor our friends was by doing what we do best—make things with metal clay. Team members individually created these charms in silver, copper and bronze. Each one was fabricated by hand and lovingly donated to this cause.

The bracelet chains are hand-fabricated of fused argentium sterling silver links with custom-made sterling silver toggles. The toggles are designed to pay tribute to Lucia and Mieko by echoing their unique signature design styles. The flower toggle is for Mieko, and the geometric toggle is for Lucia. Each bracelet is approximately 7 1/4 inches.

Raffle tickets are $5.00 USD each. Because we are raffling two bracelets, each ticket has two chances! To buy a ticket, please click the "Donate" button below. Please be sure to provide us with your e-mail address. Your raffle number or numbers will be sent to you via e-mail within 24 hours of your purchase. The raffle drawing will take place at 2:00 pm EST on Sunday, September 30. Two numbers will be chosen by Random.org - the two winners will be notified via e-mail.
