Charity Auction

One of a kind Face Masks hand made by Darren Sampson

Follow the Unveilings on INSTAGRAM

Every Friday evening I will be unveiling a “UNIQUE CREATION” mask for public auction.  100% of proceeds will be directed to charities and causes that need our support as they face new challenges arising from COVID-19.  I promise to surprise you with some extravagant, extraordinary, beautiful, and sometimes crazy and wild designs from the depths of my creative mind.

Whether you choose to wear these pieces or showcase them as collector items from a truly unique period of history is up to you. Please get involved, show support, make a bid and Embrace the Mask!
