I am so excited and honored to include Jewels For Hope in my 2012 Christmas Gift Guide. This fantastic company is run by a Mother and Daughter team who create beautiful one-of-a-kind jewelry. Sandy founded Jewels For Hope after spending a decade as the caregiver for her Mother who was afflicted with Parkinson's Disease. She is a self-taught jewelry designer who believes that "giving back" is most important and together they donate a portion of every sale to major organizations throughout the country. They have a really neat color coded chart on their donation page showing which organization will receive monies according to the color of the jewelry purchased.
Here are a few photos from the Jewels For Hope website showing off some of the gorgeous jewelry they create. Above is the bracelet designed exclusively for The 2012 MTV Movie Awards swag bags. It is made with a gorgeous light purple Swarovski Pearl and pink, clear and teal Swarovski Crystals. A portion of the profits from sales of this bracelet are donated to an organization close to my heart, The Alzheimer's Association. My great grandfather suffered from Alzheimers before he passed away and it just makes me feel good knowing that Jewels For Hope is helping to fund research for this fabulous organization.
Jewels For Hope also offers a Bridal line. I am in love with this pink and cream pearl necklace. It looks so elegant and delicate, just perfect for the bride and something that could be cherished for generations.
There are so many choices for gifts this Holiday Season, but what I love most about giving jewelry from Jewels For Hope is that it also makes a difference in the life of someone suffering by providing funds for research and offering hope for a cure. Please visit Jewels For Hope and check out all the beautiful creations you have to choose from. Stay Connected with Jewels For Hope by following them on these social media sites:
