Gryphon Song Gems

Lovely people,

I rarely ask you for anything, but as the beautiful Amanda Palmer has said, it never hurts to ask for help. And the help I am asking for is not for me, but for a fellow artist. His name is Epaul, and he is a lovely man I wish I knew better. I’ve known OF him for years and years, and have hovered shyly in the background wishing I was brave enough to say “Let’s be friends!” Epaul is a very talented gem artist, he actually carves gems—imagine!—and he has been the gem of many a renaissance faire and all kinds of shows, all across the U.S.

Epaul’s business is in danger, not because of its’ lack of talent or success at what he does, but because of mundane troubles. He may have to sell all his equipment to meet the mundane debts and if he does, he leaves himself without a way to do what only he can do. It is heartbreaking.

Please take a look at this video on Indigogo–http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/save-gryphon-song-gems. There is just one day left to help him save his livelihood. Otherwise, he will have to start completely over, a disheartening prospect for anyone and all too common in these hard economic times.

Please, pass this on if you cannot help. Just one day left to keep a true heart from breaking.

“Even the smallest act of caring for another person is like a drop of water -it will make ripples throughout the entire pond…”

  1. Diana,
    I’m too slow. I just checked out your post then headed over to the Grypon Song Gems page.
    The campaign is over, however I have bookmarked the page and perhaps will be able to help in the future.

    • Epaul has managed to get enough to scrape by without scrapping the business. He has juggled a bit more and managed to come up with enough, with recent purchases in his online shop and with the indigogo campaign. 😀 All of his friends are so happy for him, and even though he has some tightening measures to go through, he will be keeping his booth at the AZ renaissance faire and doesn’t have to sell his equipment. ❤ Thank you, Resa. It's a wonderful thing to support our fine artists.
