I’ve shared this project I’ve been working on last month on my Instagram account, but I thought it needed its own space here as well. I’ve joined The Giving Beads Project initiative to bring greater awareness to important charities all over the world.
This project was created by Lori Gilman, the owner and designer of Laurel & Bleau Jewelry. Together with 15 other momtrepreneurs influencers, we each created a unique beaded bracelet, and chose a charity of our choice in which to donate the proceeds to. The concept is simple, a purchase of a bracelet will help CHANGE THE WORLD — one bracelet at a time.
When Laurel came to me with the concept, it was a no brainer combining my passion for fashion and my beliefs of giving back, I was honored she chose me to be part of it. And hope to do more of these kind of collabs in the future!
I chose to design this bracelet in 8mm faceted Hoplite beads with a textured nugget designed by Laurel & Bleau then hand engraved with the word LOVE in oxidized black. My foundation of choice and one close to my heart is Every Mother Counts.
Every Mother Counts gives all moms and mothers to be access to the maternal health care that they need. I had an extremely difficult birth with Siella and I had the proper care, so I couldn’t imagine all these women who don’t have access to something like and wind up losing their babies. I’ve been supporting Every Mother Counts for years and I’m honored that I get to raise awareness through Laurel and Bleau.
Over the years Laurel and Bleau has donated over $75,000 to numerous charities. I encourage you to check out the entire Giving Beads collection because they are all just so beautiful! Please join me in purchasing for a cause and let’s change the world together!
