This year’s silent auction fundraiser will be held in the Neighborhood of the Arts – third floor of Village Gate – from 5:30-8:30 on Wednesday, October 7th.
The spalted birch clock above was created by Boylan Code attorney Chris Werner from salvageable portions of a tree in his own back yard.
“Spalting is a discoloration of the wood caused by a fungus intrusion. It can be quite decorative and occurs in light-colored hardwoods,” Werner explained.” Anyone who appreciates Mother Nature’s art might never see another clock like this one!”
Nicole Black, legal technology evangelist and director at MyCase.com, a cloud-based law practice management system, has been making jewelry as her creative outlet. The turquoise and silver bracelet pictured above catches the eye of most bracelet enthusiasts. Nicole also does a lot with Czech glass beads, wood beads, glass beads and silk ribbons. Below is necklace she is also donating to the Art of Lawyering auction.
Kendra McNally’s donation of a knitted lace stole/scarf is from a pattern called Enchanted. The yarn is mohair silk and polyester. It has sequins at intervals to give it a little bling. The above photo doesn’t do it justice, but the scarf she donated to AOL in 2013 sold for $150.
Also among this year’s selections is a refurbished Victoria doll house, created and contributed by Ellen Rosenweig Goldman. You have to see it in person to appreciate the details. Although the minimum bid is $400, when you see the doll house, you’ll know why she’s sold others for $750! OOOO-LA-LA.
