Welcome Home a Marine Raffle

I'm raffling off this necklace and earrings set to help send my sister and her family of 5 to North Carolina to welcome home their Marine when he arrives home from Afghanistan in August. After spending 8 months overseas I can't think of anything better than seeing your family waiting for you when you step foot on American soil for the first time.

The necklace features a handmade ceramic pendant by me stamped with a sea turtle design on luscious terra cotta clay and glazed in ocean greens and blues. The necklace is beaded with coordinating blue green glass beads and some green glass chip beads. I connected silk cording at the back of the necklace for a comfortable fit and added a gold colored metal clasp on the side. The earrings feature the same coordinating beads.

Raffle tickets are $1.00. If you e-mail me at cndula@elp.rr.com and let me know how many tickets you want, I can invoice you through paypal and you can either pay with a credit card or with a debit. I'd like to make it a minimum of 5 tickets if you are paying with a credit or debit card to offset the paypal charge. If you'd like to send a check, email me and I will send you my address. I will announce the drawing time at a later date depending on the response we get. I will ship this anywhere in the U.S. to the winner.


  1. That's a great idea! I'm going to make a donation...I'll contact you offline. :)
