Do you have jewellery from Funaki you don't wear? Turn it into a donation for bushfire recovery.

Perhaps it was a gift that didn't quite hit the mark. Maybe you loved it once but it's now at the back of a drawer. Or perhaps you treasure it still, but you're prepared to give it up...

Donate it to our silent auction to raise funds for the CFA and Zoos Victoria Emergency Fund.

We're all feeling overwhelmed at the fires devastating vast swathes of Australia and displacing whole communities, from our precious coasts and farmland to our irreplaceable alpine high country. Business as usual is impossible. We can't replace what's gone, but your jewellery can help support those on the front lines, who are working so hard to save what's left.

Donations of jewellery in good condition* are welcome until Friday 14 February.

Please bring your piece in for us to look at, or email us a picture. If it's suitable, we'll ask you to send it in with any relevant details.

You'll choose to which of our nominated recipients money raised should go: the CFA Volunteer Welfare Fund or Zoos Victoria Bushfire Emergency Wildlife Fund. All proceeds will be donated.

The auction will run Monday 2nd - Sunday 8th March and works will be available to view at Gallery Funaki during that week.

Once all jewellery is received and documented, we'll provide more information so you can survey the field and prepare your bids! We hope this will be a rare opportunity to secure a special piece - something perhaps you missed out on the first time - with works from the gallery's own collection also on offer.

Please email Katie at gallery@galleryfunaki.com.au for more information or with any questions. Thank you for your support.

* Signs of wear are OK, but we'll need to assess condition and sellability. Only works by Funaki artists (past or present) thanks! Any unsold pieces will be returned to the donor. Reserve prices will apply.
