The next sponsor I am going to announce for my Mad About Mama Mother's Day event is Jewels For Hope. They are an etsy shop that carries very beautiful and unique handcrafted jewelry. I don't know about you, but I absolutely adore handmade goods, whether it be clothing, cloth diapers, beauty products, and yes, even jewelry. Something that is made by hand has a lot more character than anything you'll find at your local mall. Each piece is different, and each piece is painstakingly and lovingly created. I actually wore the piece I received from Jewels Of Hope today when I ran a few errands, and I got several compliments on it! I am not going to post my photos here, though, cause that would spoil the surprise. I'll show you my new favorite accessory in April, during my Mother's Day event!
Anyway, let me tell you a little bit about Jewels For Hope. It is run by a very sweet woman named Sandy, and she enlists the help of her daughter who makes the cutest greeting cards. Sandy also has 2 Black Labs who act as supervisors to make sure the ladies stay out of trouble,lol...Just kidding. Jewels Of Hope carries a wide variety of gorgeous handmade jewelry, such as necklaces, pendants, anklets, and bracelets. They also carry her daughter's adorable greeting cards and one of a kind gift tags. In making her jewelry, Sandy uses the highest quality materials, such as pearls and Swarovski crystals. She also loves using vintage pendants in her creations. Her work is not only unique and colorful, it is simply beautiful as well.
Mother's Day is something that Sandy holds very near and dear to her heart. You see, Sandy was a caregiver to her mother, who had Parkinson's Disease. She devoted her days and nights to caring for the woman who gave her the gift of life during her final years. Jewels For Hope was created while her mother was on Hospice care during the last 6 months of her life, and Sandy, in memory of her mother, generously donates a portion of her proceeds to Connecticut Hospice as her way of giving back. I love the inspiration behind Sandy's work, and I know her mother must be looking down on her with such pride.
In the spirit of Mother's Day and what it means to Sandy, she has very generously offered a beautiful piece of jewelry to one of my lucky readers during my Mad About Mama event. But we're not quite there yet....I know, I know...You want the giveaway now, but good things come to those who wait, ladies! I cannot wait until April 20th when I start my event posts! I won't tell you what Jewels For Hope has donated, but I will say it is gorgeous, and would make a lovely gift for any mama in your life! In the meantime, I would love to show you just a few examples of what Jewels For Hope has to offer:
Oh, and did I mention that the necklace at the top of this post is featured in Wire Jewelry Magazine?
