Painting to be auctioned at Jewelers for Children Facets of Hope event
(NEW YORK) - Continuing her commitment to Jewelers for Children (JFC), artist Reena Ahluwalia is donating an original diamond painting to JFC to raise funds. The 20-inch painting, ‘Hope’, features a highly nuanced, hyper-realistic round brilliant diamond. It took Reena 200-hours to complete. The painting will be auctioned at the JFC’s Facets of Hope event on June 2, at The Venetian in Las Vegas, NV.
Reena is an award-winning jewelry designer, painter and professor. Each year she donates her artworks to benefit Jewelers for Children. Reena said, “I am honored to be able to contribute to JFC and urge our generous industry members to continue supporting the charity with what they can. This is an impact that is measurable and one that truly matters.”
This year’s JFC will honor Judy Fisher of Reeds Jewelers and David Bonaparte of Jewelers of America.
