Friends, I’m so excited to tell you about a little collaboration I’ve cooked up with jewelry designer Alicia Marilyn. It turns out we both have a serious soft spot for furry creatures, and thought it would be fun to team up to try to raise some dough for an animal charity Alicia particularly loves.
I got to peruse Alicia’s entire collection, and – because I couldn’t narrow it down to one – I picked my two favorite pieces:
Aren’t they beautiful? As pretty as they are in pictures, they’re even better in person: detailed, dimensional and substantial. I love that they’re statement pieces, but still incredibly versatile. I’ve tried them with everything from jeans to work wear to wedding-guest attire, and they’re flawless.
(How do you like my modeling technique? I know, I could totally be a professional bracelet model.)
If you love them as much as I do, buy the Filigree Cuff or the Interwoven Cuff between now and August 15, and 20% of the purchase price will go straight to Farm Sanctuary, a fantastic non-profit that rescues abused farm animals.
(Okay, don’t look too closely at Farm Sanctuary’s website…it will make you sad very quickly. Just trust me when I tell you they’re doing good things for cute little furries.)
Everyone wins! You get a bracelet you’ll wear with absolutely everything (I haven’t been able to take the samples off since they arrived…), and the smug satisfaction of having helped some very deserving sheep and ducklings get a good home. I can’t think of a better way to treat yourself.
So, I’m dying to know: do you have a favorite? Now that I’ve tried them out, I might love one slightly more than the other, though it’s still a very tight race. How about you?
