Raffle Supporting WWTH

Each week, for the next five weeks, we release a new one of a kind piece of jewelry that you will have a chance to enter and win. Each artwork is a collaborative effort between a lapidary artist and jewelry designer. Each design begins with a beautiful bespoke gem custom cut for the jeweler to work with. The result is a completely one of a kind, collectible piece of art jewelry, and often the first collaboration between the featured artists. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales benefit We Wield the Hammer.

Raffle tickets can be purchased in any quantity over a one week period for each raffle. Winners will be randomly drawn the day following the conclusion of each raffle. Time and dates will be posted. Domestic shipping is included. While the raffles are open to international entrants, international shipping will incur additional charges.
