From Lumos --

Yesterday at Sotheby’s London sale of English Literature, History, Children’s Books & Illustrations the Lumos Maxima bracelet - a bespoke sterling silver charm bracelet based on designs by J.K Rowling and inspired by her Harry Potter books – sold for £20,000 (est. £15,000-20,000).

The bracelet, which features eleven charms, each handcrafted in the silver workshops of Edinburgh jeweller Hamilton & Inches was inspired by a bracelet that the author had herself been given by her editor and the head of Bloomsbury children’s books, on the day that the seventh and final Harry Potter book was published.

The Bracelet has been bought by Scots Businessman Alan Fergusson, (Chief Executive Of Fergusson Group) who saw “a great opportunity to purchase a special Christmas gift for his wife whilst supporting a very worthy charity.” On purchasing the bracelet, Mr Fergusson - who lives in Blairlogie, Stirling, with his wife Yvonne and three children - said that “J K Rowling said before the auction that she was certain the sister bracelet would go to a very nice woman, and she can be confident the bracelet will be treasured by Yvonne and my family for generations. My wife absolutely adores the Harry Potter series and she now can’t wait until Christmas day to open her present. As someone who supports a number of charitable causes, it has also been very pleasing to back a charity which creates opportunity for so many disadvantaged young people across the world.”

All proceeds from the sale are to benefit Lumos, the children’s charity J.K. Rowling founded in 2005. Lumos aims to end the systematic institutionalisation of children, a harmful practice that affects 8 million children worldwide, 1 million of whom are in Europe – many separated from their families and placed in so called ‘orphanages’ as a result of poverty, disability and discrimination. http://wearelumos.org/
