on angel’s wings

As some of you know, my mom is an extremely talented jewelry designer. For years she has been making beautifully unique and timeless pieces of fine jewelry. I have been blessed to have received many of her pieces as gifts and I absolutely treasure them.

Each year around this time, my mom has generously run a promotion on her website, offering to donate a very generous portion of the profits from the sale of her jewelry to Autism Speaks through our walk team, Team Umizoomi. Through these promotions, she has donated a hearty sum to TU and I am grateful.

But this year, she wanted to do something different. Although her jewelry is worth every penny, she uses the finest materials and they don’t come cheap. It’s beautiful, but it’s not often within reach for families who are struggling to pay for their child’s services. So God bless her, she wanted to create something that would be accessible to all of us. Something that would represent the journey we walk with autism. Something beautiful that could serve as a conversation starter. That could help raise awareness. That could simply be a reminder of why we do what we do every day. And that could help raise vital funds for research and desperately needed family services.

So she created the Autism Collection. She used the iconic puzzle pieces fashioned out of sterling silver, shades of blue Swarovski crystals and pearls and angel wings. That’s my favorite part – the angel wings. For our angels, for HOPE.

The collection starts at twenty dollars. The most expensive piece is thirty-five. EVERY CENT – 100% – of all net profits will go to Autism Speaks.

Thanks for looking, thanks for shopping and thank you, above all, for supporting our kids.
