Who's ready for Phish; Baker's Dozen tour at MSG

Who would have ever thought that one of our biggest sellers would be a Phish inspired photo pendant? 

We made this design about a year or two ago when my Phish obsessed BF came up with the suggestion. To be completely honest, we made the design just to shut him up. We never thought in a million years that this would be a huge hit in our shop. Now, we've branched out to include some other jam band pendants/keychains as well as created some funky new Phish designs in honor of the Baker's Dozen tour at MSG. As I'm going to the show tonight, I'll be sure to snap some pics of me wearing my necklace there.

Essential Oil Jewelry for Yoga Lovers

We connected with an awesome blogger from Connecticut, Red White & Denim. Jen, is a fellow New Englander and was kind enough to show off some of her Jewels For Hope charity creations on her blog. 

She is a big time yoga enthusiast and we were so happy to connect with her to show her our aromatherapy jewelry. We wholeheartedly believe in essential oils in helping to relax you and clear your head. We use them ourselves in everyday life  - and when we heard from Jen that she loves to use essential oils during yoga, we knew this was a perfect match!

Check out some of these awesome shots Jen took. If you're into New England style or are a fellow yogi, go over and say hi to her -she's super sweet and has great style... obviously if she loved Jewels For Hope's bracelets :)

Secret Bars and Dreamcatchers

I recently took a trip to Manchester, NH... for no other reason than to just take a random trip. We ended up finding the coolest bar in the world, a secret hidden passage bar. 

My dream goal in life is to have a house with secret passages. How amazing would that be? It doesn't have to be fancy, just have a secret passage or two. Not too much to ask for, right? 

Well, this bar was everything I could ever want and more. You had to find the actual bar, get a password, and give it to someone via old fashion phone.

Once you give them the correct word, BAM the wall slides open and in you go. 

They had comfy couches everywhere and awesome artwork on the walls. I wish I could have stayed in this bar the entire time...

Well, actually, I did go there twice in the 2 days we were there. Both nights were magical, and that's not just because of the delicious drinks they had! I don't have a photo of me at the bar the 2nd night, but I loved my outfit so much I took the standard mirror selfie (don't judge). I looked very boho with my dreamcatcher necklace and aromatherapy bracelets

Summer Style for Everyone

Summer is here! It has been hot, hot, hot in Connecticut - so we have been creating some wonderful fun summer pieces to go along with the weather. Once it gets nice out, our family always has on flip flops and anklets. We practically live in them all summer!

Do you wear anklets in the summer? Doesn't it make you feel sexy? We love the way it looks and it's the perfect summer accessory.

Don't they just pop on tan skin? The colors are so fun for warm weather outfits!

For the Love of Florals

Spring is here and I am all about florals.. especially anything pink. I found this sale top at Express that had the exact pink that matched my favorite bracelet I wear almost daily... So of course I had to buy it. I mean, whoever said orange was the new pink was seriously disturbed, right? So pink is it for me. 

Top: Express | Choker: Jewels For Hope | Bracelets: Jewels For Hope | Jeans: Charlotte Russe

What is your spring style looking like? Are you obsessed with florals like I am?

Forget the Unicorn Frappacino... Bring Unicorn Magic with You Everyday

All I have seen over every social media platform is the Unicorn Frappacino. My sister, a current Starbucks employee, has been talking about them, I see them everywhere, basically - in my opinion- everyone I know wants to be a unicorn.

I don't need those calories. So instead, I'll dress like a unicorn (at least with my accessories).

Our beaded charity bracelets are the perfect way to show unicorn spirit without drinking a 500 calorie beverage (I mean, really... who has the metabolism to plow through that?).

I wear this pink beaded bracelet almost daily. I love anything neon and bright and think it will really pop once I have a nice tan going. 

Have you broken down and tried the Unicorn Frap? Was it worth it?

Charity Creations at Coachella

Yes, I may be across the country but we can still talk about Coachella fashion. I love everything about the outfits we see at Coachella. Everything that has a hippie, free spirited, rock and roll style, I'ma bit obsessed with. Once spring hits I'm always rocking a stack of beaded bracelets, choker necklaces, or tassel jewelry.

Yep, my chubby little fingers still look good in this shot of our new Buddah Bracelets (perfect for Coachella, right? If only I was there...)

Even though we are not there to physically celebrate the festival, I am happy to say our charity creations are. We connected with this very sweet actor on Instagram, Bret Green. He is currently staring in CBS's show The Inspectors! Along with being a great actor, Bret takes gorgeous photos - be sure to check out his Instagram account to view his work. While you're there... take a look at his style, you may see some charity bracelets that look familiar!

Doesn't Bret look great in these photos? Go check out his Instagram to see more of his wonderful shots.

Look Good & Do Good with #JewelsForHope today for #WorldParkinsonsDay

Today is World Parkinson's Day. 

Parkinson's Disease affected our family, as my grandmother suffered from this disease throughout the end of her life. My mother Sandy founded Jewels For Hope when she was a caregiver to my grandmother. Watching this disease take over my grandmother's body was rough to watch. It is a scary disease and thinking about it still hits me hard.

Here's an adorable shot of me and my cousin with my grandma and grandpa. I am the chubby cute baby on the left. 

In honor of this day, we want to donate 25% of the profits of every single sale today to The American Parkinson's Disease Association. 

For our lovely customers, we're giving you free shipping! For free shipping, use code: WORLDPARKDAY 

Click Here to view our new designs we've added to the site and to order yours today! 
Everyone wearing Jewels For Hope can Look Good, Do Good, & Feel Good!

"I'm Where I'm Meant To Be"... #Tangled

This past year I planned my own magical Tangled moment with my sisters and our boyfriends. We planned a trip to the Rise festival in Las Vegas... to see the floating lights. For all of you Tangled fans out there, you know I'm referring to a lantern festival.

We planned this trip for months... my sisters and I have a love for Tangled (what, don't most 30 year olds watch animated movies?) and when we heard of this festival we knew it was something we had to experience. 

The time had finally come to fly to Vegas and head out into the dessert for this wonderful moment. Obviously, I get sick the night we land and almost missed the festival completely. After chugging a bottle of pepto (eww) and walking around with a cold compress on my head (yea, I looked great)... I ubered out to the dessert with my man and met up with the rest of our group who got to the festival on time. 

I will forever remember this night. I was sick as a dog, holding on to my man for dear life as we walked a mile through the dessert to find my sisters in a sea of thousands of people. I finally got to my sisters and started to cry, tears of joy. I made it. This was it. The sight of those two beauties among this wave of floating lights will be an image burned into my mind forever. As I'm writing this I'm starting to tear up. I felt like I was Rapunzel at this exact moment. 


Us. Among the floating lights. This was one of the most beautiful moments of my life. I may look horrendous in the photos, but I didn't care. I was sick, didn't eat for most of the time I was in Vegas, didn't gamble, basically laid around for 4 days.. but I made it to this event. I made it to my moment. 

I will say though, right before getting into the car to head to the event.. I looked pretty good, if I say so myself. Take a look at the 1 and only photo I look decent in the entire 4 day trip we were there. 

Outfit Details:
Necklace: Jewels For Hope  Pants: Charlotte Russe Top: Forever 21 

Have you ever been to a lantern festival? Did you feel it was as special as I believe? Did you have your own personal Tangled moment?

What to Wear with #StacyLondon

My mother and I have always been huge fans of Stacy London. We would watch What Not To Wear all the time... and when we had the opportunity to meet Stacy, it was a dream come true. 

My mother was lucky enough to be styled by Stacy for Westfield Style Magazine. She got her hair and makeup done, while they picked out a fun outfit for them to shoot her in. While we were at the glamorous NYC photoshoot, my mother gave Stacy 2 special bracelets we created just for her. One of which is our Antique Spacer and Crystal Charity Bracelet that donates a portion of the profits to The American Cancer Society.

My mom had so much fun at this shoot... and Stacy wore our bracelets the entire time! 

She even had them on in Westfield Style Magazine when it came out!

We will never forget this experience! It was such a fun time! Stacy even gives us a shoutout in this behind the scenes clip from the day... check out 0.49 seconds - 1:04.
