Greener Boxes

Here are the new boxes I got to replace the old velvet ones -

The outer box is made from recycled paper so I feel like they are a much eco-friendlier option. Now if only there was some way to get rid of that foam insert...

November Jewelry for Charity Recap & December Kick-Off

Once again I am blown away by the support I've received from my amazing customers. November was a busy month and thanks to all of you who placed orders, today I'm able to cut a check to Farm Sanctuary for $1,040.00. This donation is especially meaningful to me because it is in honor of the passing of my sweet turkey, Blossom, and in celebration of the two turkeys we adopted from Farm Sanctuary this month, Constance and Marianne - which reminds me, I haven't shared photos of our new girls here on the blog yet, so without further ado -

Aren't they pretty?

This month's donation brings my total to date to $23,110.00. I hope you all aren't totally sick of me saying this, but I am just so completely overwhelmed with gratitude to be able to have a job that I enjoy so much, and that also allows me to direct a significant portion of my profits to charity.

For December, I'm featuring Doctors Without Borders, so as usual, 5% of anything you spend with me this month goes straight to them. Doctors Without Borders is an international medical humanitarian organization working in more than 60 countries to assist people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe.
