Don’t forget the Orchid Silent Auction.
The 2nd Annual New England Orchid Event Silent Auction
This is your opportunity to assist keeping Ganoksin healthy and
strong. The purpose of an Orchid Silent Auction is two-fold. One, it
helps with the enormous expense of running Ganoksin’s new server
Titania. Two, you get to bid on tools, jewelry, books, stones or
equipment for your studio!
What should you donate? Anything really. The Orchid Silent Auction
has seen Casting Equipment to Muffin Pans. Bidding is fun and
How do I donate?
It’s easy! Send an email to Karen@metalwerx.com with the item you
wish to donate, the value, your contact and we’ll take
