Auctions begin on Monday, July 21 and end Monday, July 28. Blogathon is July 26-27. Remember, each of these items will have a piece of short fiction written about them; winners receive a story card with the item. All stories written spontaneously during the Blogathon. Hour 22 should be interesting.
Please pimp these auctions hard next week! The more people see them, the more bids we get, the more money we raise for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center.

#3: Viking Ring Cross pendant by regal_pewter.
#4: Antiqued bronze knotwork heart by cissa of Electric Celt.
#6: Heart and key necklace by shrijani of Delanuit. "Sterling and fine silver, "mineral glass" watch crystal, and a digitally altered photographic print of an illustration from the text book Graded Lessons in Physiology and Hygiene by Krohn-Crombine, published in 1912. I put it on an adjustable black leather thong, but it can be hung on anything that will fit through the jump ring. They key is one of my sterling silver vintage replica keys, the "Diary Key" style. Both pieces are meant to be somewhat rustic, so even though the pendant has a modern style, it's supposed to get dinged up. The watch crystal is strong, but it is breakable, so the buyer should know not to fling it onto the pavement, just like they wouldn't do a watch, etc. :)"
