Let Freedom Swing can be yours! Artist Tamela Burgess created a beautiful hand-crafted necklace celebrating the Cle Elum Seven’s release to sanctuary. We want to make this one-of-a-kind, truly amazing auction donation available to all chimpanzee supporters, not just those who can attend the Celebrate the Seven auction. So, it will be given to the first person who lets me know that they will pay the guaranteed bid price of $1270.
Tamela spent a great deal of time working on this piece and used the finest materials. Here is her description, “The pendant is made of fine silver and is 3″x2.” The painted clay inclusion depicts a young juvenile chimpanzee swinging in the trees of his or her African homeland. I also used Kazuri ceramic beads and Krobo recycled glass beads from Africa. CSNW means so much to me and I’ve been working really hard to create something special for the auction.” The necklace is approximately 18in long.
Tamela even included a display box and – get this! – a book of photographs illustrating and describing the process of making the necklace. We were all blown away. It is a beautiful piece by a beautiful person. See the photos below and fall in love like we did. Email me right away when you decide you can’t live without it: [email protected]
It will be available up until the auction date, Oct. 2nd or until it goes to the lucky person who makes the guaranteed bid.
