Get involved in the Silent Auction at the 10th Annual Tucson Dinner
2006. Proceeds from the Silent Auction benefit Ganoksin’s continued
growth of archives and galleries. You can get involved by donating an
item to the auction or by bidding on them at the Orchid Event.
Donations may be in the form of artwork, tools, books, gemstones,
services, or any other items relating to metalsmithing. In years
past, the most popular items have been hand-made tools, but there are
lots of things that you can donate for the auction. Consider donating
a copy of your favorite metalsmithing book, or an original piece of
your metalwork. Casting services, advertising, and other services are
also hot items!
Ganoksin exists to facilitate sharing, jewelry research
and to publish current articles from many major publications in the
Silent Auction Donations can be either mailed to
