If you’ve ever had occasion to read the comments here on Diary, you’re likely familiar with my mom. She’s the wonderfully supportive Grammy who signs her comments, “Love, Mom.” You can’t miss her. She’s also the one who took me to Bloomingdale’s at four days old, but there’s no need to bring that up again.
But anyway, perhaps we should make it official. For those of you who have not yet met her – Mom, meet everyone. Everyone, meet Mom.
My mom won’t tell you herself, but in addition to making the best chocolate mousse on the planet, she also happens to be a fabulously talented jewelry designer. Now, sadly, you’re unlikely to have the opportunity to sample her chocolate mousse. Luckily, however, you can wear her jewelry.
Now, I don’t do product endorsements or reviews on the blog. I’m adamant about NOT doing them in fact. Unless there’s a really good reason. Like, say … oh … hmm … she’s my mom. And she’s donating a significant portion of total sales (not profits, mind you, but SALES) to charities that will impact our children’s lives right this minute. Oh, and I happen to LOVE her jewelry and am nearly ALWAYS wearing one of her necklaces. Like say, right now.
(I’m wearing one just like this one, but with slightly darker sapphires. It goes with EVERYTHING I own.)
No, that’s not me. It’s actually my gorgeous cousin, Ariel.
(And she looks that good cause, well, she’s beautiful, but also because she’s really young and doesn’t have kids yet.
See? no bags under her eyes.)
Anyway, all of the pieces are designed and hand crafted by my mom. She uses only the finest quality gems and findings and creates truly beautiful jewelry.
So please check it out. What’s better than being able to treat yourself or shop for holiday gifts, all while helping to make a better life for our kids?
Oh, and did I mention the very best part? YOU get to determine which charity you’d like to support! Here’s how it works. On any purchase made between now and November 15th, The Jewel Box Studio will donate 15% of your purchase to any one of the following charities. All you have to do is write your choice into the instructions or tell my mom when you call. It’s that easy.
Tell her I said hi!
