Update on the Missing Charity Pieces

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 5:23 PM

Tree of Harmony Pin, Apples to the Core Missing!!

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 21, 2014, 6:21 PM
Sad news.  Two Season 4 inspired designs that I'm really proud of:

Apples to the Core Pendant by SilverSlinger  The Tree of Harmony Pin by SilverSlinger

were to be donated to the BABSCon charity auction that took place last Sunday.  Unfortunately, before the auction started, these two designs went missing.  I've spent part of my evening last night trying to find out what I can about these, and most of today as well.  All I know so far is that the pieces were in fact seen at one point or another during the convention, and went missing before the auction.

I can't get ahold of the ladies in charge of BabsCon, and I can't get ahold of anyone working for Bronies for Good, the organization in charge of the auction. 

So far it's looking like the two designs were stolen, but I don't have enough information to come to that conclusion.  If anyone who attended BabsCon has ANY information about these two designs, PLEASE let me know!

I worked very hard on both designs, I'm very proud of each. 

EDIT: thanks to a combined effort of DeviantART and Twitter, I was able to get the phone number of the BabsCon Con chair and she told me they made finding my jewelry a top priority.  If they find my pieces, they will send them back to me so I can donate them to other charities.  If not, they agreed to pay a reimbursement amount to the charities their auction was for.  Thank you all for your support!

Hi! I love your work here. I was looking at your lead wing and side wing pendants and was actually wondering if you could ever make a ring set with that theme. I would love to have my girlfriend and I to have lead wing/side wing matching rings. Maybe kind of like a promise ring type of idea. What do you think?

How did u start mlp metal art work?
SilverSlinger Apr 9, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
I learned the basics from my father, who's also a jeweler, and taught myself the rest over the years.  I did take a class on hand engraving, and I also went to apprentice under another jeweler who's been making jewelry for over 50 years.
