Don’t forget to bid on my auction to raise money for NieNie, the blogger who was severely burned in a plane crash. Click here to read about her and to bid.
Look at NieNie with her gorgeous family.
Now bid! We hit $500 this morning. This means the winner will definitely get a silver necklace worth $250 and blue topaz earrings worth $100, PLUS a great artist will engrave the pendant for you in a one-of-a-kind design. Normally that work would cost $500 alone! Who else is offering you something so special? H&M? Topshop? Prada? Balenciaga? Tiffany? Don’t make me laugh. NONE of them are offering you anything one-of-a-kind. When has Karl Lagerfeld last done something one-of-a-kind for you? Zara certainly hasn’t. Be smart. Re-assign your fashion budget for as long as you have to and get something special for yourself while doing something special for NieNie!
Our next goal is $1,000. The winning bidder who pays $1000 or more gets the engraved necklace, the topaz earrings and … immortality. I will name a piece of jewelry after you or a loved one and add it to my permanent collection. You’ll be on my website with Elizabeth I, Anne Boleyn and Cleopatra. (I have even more incentives up my sleeve if you pass $1,000.)
To give you some perspective, a beautiful Balenciaga Giant Part Time bag is $1,645. I am offering you immortality for $1,000. Which is the better deal?
If you can’t bid yourself, you can still contribute:
- If you have a blog, please post about this so you can help me find other bidders.
- Email your friends and family! Tell them to bid. For that matter, tell people that this is the birthday present of your dreams and ask them to all chip in for you. Or tell them it’s the holiday present of your dreams and that they should shop early this year.
- If you have a Facebook page, put this link in your status update: http://wbjewelry.blogspot.com/2008/09/nienie-auction.html

Help me get $1,000 for NieNie and Christian!
TV ALERT!! Stephanie “NieNie” Nielson’s family will be on the first hour of the Today show tomorrow. Set your Tivo. For that matter, set a Tivo for me too, since I don’t seem to have a working one.

Your sweetness is really really touching! Another thing to add to the scarily impressive Wendy features list?
I’ll definitely post about this today, I meant to yesterday but the toddler time sucking vortext got in the way.
You are doing such a wonderful thing here!
I just bid again!

I applaude you. Thank you for the comment on my blog. would you like to exchange links? Your jewelry is stunning. And I was looking through your past posts and the wedding dress at the end of the page is stunning. The most beautiful wedding dress I have ever seen. I am in love.

Soo pleased your auction is going great, very well done!!
Sharon, it needs to do better.
Come on, Herald, Christmas is only 3 1/2 months away. People will need to get you something. Tell them you want immortality and it’s only on sale NOW.
This is the first I’ve heard of this. I haven’t been by your blog in a while. I hope they are on the mend and your auction is a huge success. Very scary and sad news, but thank god they survived and have a great network of friends and family.
