Can you believe it's been over a month since the terrible Earthquake in Japan?  So much has happened since then and yet I am still overwhelmed by the courage and bravery shown by everyone in Japan...  Four weeks ago we made a promise to donate £5 to the Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal for every item bought from our web-site in the coming month.  Well, since then we have raised a massive £2275.00 !  So I'd like to say a HUGE thank you to all the customers who've supported our efforts by shopping on our web-site.  This would not have been possible with out all you lovely people!

Alex has also been working on a special fundraising exhibition to help support the relief efforts in Japan.  He was asked to create something really special to be auctioned in Japan through H. P. France.  You can see the auction site here, but it's all in Japanese so it may not make any sense to you, it doesn't to me, but luckily I have Mayo to translate!

Made in super quick time, we managed to ship this special necklace just a few days ago, so it should be arriving in Japan any minute now...


Check out the amazing details and texture on the petals of the Fritillary flower.  Although you may not expect it (Alex is usually found at his bench making near invisible tiny insects or whisps of delicate feather), this piece is actually one of the largest pendants Alex has made - and we LOVE it !

All of AMHQ have been coveting this piece, so let us know what you think...

To top it all, a few weeks ago we were lucky enough to be approached by Action Against Hunger - an amazing international humanitarian organisation who are committed to ending child hunger. Recognised as a leader in the fight against malnutrition, Action Against Hunger saves the lives of malnourished children while providing communities with access to safe water and sustainable solutions to hunger.  A. A. H. asked us if we would like to be involved with their charity auction and dinner held at The Boisdale of Canary Wharf, which is a super posh Whiskey, Cigar and Jazz Club, check out the pics -

What a lot of whisky!

a touch of old-school glamour

We thought our Fruit Cocktail Ring would be perfect for the event, and it certainly seemed very popular, going at auction for £500 !

On the night,  a total of £46,000 was raised. WOW.  This money will be used to support projects in over 40 countries worldwide and also enables Action Against Hunger to respond to emergencies such as the ongoing crisis on the Ivory Coast.  I'd also like to say thanks to the team at A. A. H. UK, especially Pauline!  We'd never have been organised in time with out your help!

Phew!  It's been a busy month, but full of loads of exciting projects - working with these amazing organisations and individuals who do so much to help other people is the most inspiring thing and we're lucky to be able to do it :)

Have a super weekend eveyone!
