We recently added a new Astrology Necklace to our site that excited us all here at the studio. The charm is a fine silver charm h and made by the Karen Hill Tribe in Thail and , and we have added a tiny Zodiac sign and an embedded birthstone to the charm. The result is so feminine, and personal – and we all like that the Zodiac sign is subtle but can still be seen above the stone. The stone adds some meaningful sparkle, and we can add a short name or word to the back of the charm. It was fun to have the team collaborate on this one, and we’re all enjoying our necklaces now!
My previous post mentioned America’s Camp, a wonderful camp in Massachusetts that offers children who lost a parent in 9/11 a week of bonding, fun and support. They were featured in the Boston Globe recently and this is the video about the camp. It is truly touching to see all the kids enjoying themselves and feeling comfortable in this environment. The sad part is, this was the camp’s last year. I love to see how much the camp has touched their lives over the years. Our America’s Camp charm actually got in the video – kind of nice for me to feel just a little bit a part of it all. Click below to see the video on Youtube.
I recently had the pleasure of creating a very special charm to represent a very special camp that takes place in Hinsdale, Massachusetts every August. The camp is held for children that lost a parent on 9/11, and this August is their 10th year. Many of the counselors and campers wanted to wear something to show how meaningful this camp is to their lives, and to have a little reminder of the support and friends they have at the camp throughout the rest of the year. America’s Camp has a logo that represents the kids ‘reaching for the stars’, so we came up with a design to mirror this logo and we put it on a 5/8″ sterling silver disc. I truly enjoyed working with Lisa (one of the camp counselors) on this project and am happy to know that these charms have brightened up some of the camper’s lives this summer. Check out their new charm and check out their camp’s website when you have a chance!
