Golden Globes Gift Lounge Prep

As some of you who have been reading my blog for some time now know, Jewels for Hope will be gifting 100 items in the Golden Globes Gift Lounge and 100 items in the Oscars Gift Lounge, both hosted by GBK Productions.

I haven't been blogging as much lately because we have been working so diligently on the items for the swag bags.

We wanted to make something classy and elegant. Nothing like our big chunky twisted wire pieces--- because we totally understand that those kind of items are not for everyone. But we figured, simple & classy can be worked into any outfit.

Here is 100 necklaces.

Yep. 100. We are so completely thrilled to be done with them! We poured our heart and soul into these pieces.

They are all different colors- representing each of the fabulous organizations we donate to.

A couple close up shots? Well... if you insist....

These necklaces are all Swarovski Crystals and Pearls. swooon.

Today I actually started packaging some the items. I am so happy they look so good! We had looked long and hard for the perfect boxes, perfect ribbons, and perfect stickers for the boxes. Everything has to be just right- I mean, these are going to the celebs here. Can't use damaged goods!

We actually were so excited that we found out about this company that has ribbon-- they were only like an hour away!!!!! It's called May Arts!

This ribbon is absolutely perfecccct. Using it today I was so pleased that we purchased from this company. The ribbon has such a great feel to it- really high quality. I'm used to rummaging through the dollar bin at Michaels for my ribbon- so this was a treat to use such pretty sturdy ribbon!

Look how fun this design is! They are the same colors as our cards that are in the boxes- we love that turquoise./mocha combo. It looks so sharp! And hello? Double sided ribbon! Can't beat that. May Arts had so many designs to choose from- but this one definitely won in the end. We love this funky-fresh design!

I know you all are dying to see how some of the boxes came out. Unfortunately, I'm going to make you wait. *evil laugh*.

Don't worry though- I will be writing tons of posts about my progress getting ready for the Golden Globes Gift Lounge! And who knows.... maybe after the gift lounge I'll be able to come back here with some great photos of some CELEBS wearing our products *fingers and toes crossed for us please*
