Today is my birthday so I feel a bit nostalgic. When I was growing up, Memorial Day weekend was always the official start of summer. I grew up in the northeastern states so the weather went along with that concept.  Now I've lived in the south my entire adult life including college, and summer seems to start with Spring Break.  In the south, school gets out earlier so families are heading on summer vacations and kids are headed to the pool in early May.  In early August, school begins a new year.  Something about that has never felt quite right. I feel nostalgic for my childhood days of summer lasting from Memorial Day until Labor Day.

Summer is flip flop season, so check out our flops that you can design yourself!  Click here.

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!

Trendy Giving

Earlier this month we began a fundraising campaign where 100% of the profits from our Faith jewelry is donated to BrightPoint for Children, a Christ-centered, child sponsorship organization through which sponsors can provide for the basic needs and education of impoverished children wherever they may live.  BrightPoint enables children to:
  •  Receive needed food, clothing, shelter, health care and adult care.
  • Attend school and receive a quality education.
  • Graduate with a secondary school education.
We introduced two items, hand made by a local jewelry designer.  The “HolyTrinity" bracelet includes a sterling silver cross and heart among three sterling silver beads signifying the Holy Trinity; the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit surrounded by precious stone beads of aurora borealis, czech glass, fire polished crystal, onyx, jade and quartz.

The “Life of Christ” bracelet represents the life of Jesus Christ.  It is handcrafted in sterling silver,   amethyst, onyx, glass and quartz.  It comes in a beautiful gift box with the story printed on the top showing you how to follow the beads in the story.

We will continue fundraising ongoing for this worthwhile charity.
