Congrats to sparkfactory for emerging the winner of EFC October Challenge – HELP! (refer poll results HERE)

Her entry is a pair of red funky earrings which she says : “POW! Very red and loaded with attitude, these funky earrings are like two little explosions hanging off your ears. Recall the sound effects found in super hero comics – POW! ZAP! BIFF! Designed for this month’s theme of the EFC challenge, ‘Help’, these earrings would befit the ears of any female (or male!) Superhero!”

A superb description and great photos taken of this beautiful pair of earrings. What’s more to add for being the winner of this challenge is that this pair of earrings has been SOLD!

Amnesty International – Working to Protect Human Rights Worldwide
http://www.amnesty.org

Amnesty International is a worldwide movement of people who campaign for human rights. Their work is based on careful research and on the standards agreed by the international community. They are independent of any government, political ideology, economic interest or religion.

Amnesty International mobilizes volunteer activists — people who give freely of their time and energy in solidarity with those whose rights have been abused. At the latest count, there were more than 2.2 million members, supporters and subscribers in over 150 countries and territories in every region of the world. They come from all walks of life, with widely different political and religious views, united by our determination to work for a world where everyone enjoys human rights.

EFC members donated $10.00 to this charity in November.

October 2007 Challenge Entry – POW! by sparkfactory

POW! Very red and loaded with attitude, these funky earrings are like two little explosions hanging off your ears. Recall the sound effects found in super hero comics – POW! ZAP! BIFF! Designed for this month’s theme of the EFC challenge, ‘Help’, these earrings would befit the ears of any female (or male!) Superhero!

Aside from the visual wow factor, these earrings are also extremely tactile and have lots of movement in them. The coral chips are strung onto delicate silver wire and move around freely, so they are in a constant state of flux… fiddle with them for a moment and the form changes – great if you are someone who likes to fidget, or has just given up smoking and needs something to do with your fingers!

These earrings look their best worn with black, white and red… dress them up for a zinger of a night out or add a little fizz to an otherwise sedate work outfit… you’ll be surprised how very versatile they are.

POW! comes packaged in a beautiful chocolate brown presentation box and will be shipped to you insured, for total peace of mind (this is included in the cost of shipping).

Details:
Red coral (dyed) – chips
Sterling Silver – 2mm round
Earwires & all findings – sterling silver
Length – 40mm (from top of earwire)

50% of profit is donated to The World Food Program and Share The World’s Resources, two organisations working to bring an end to global hunger and inequality (see my Profile for more information).
