Autism Awareness Month

April is Autism Awareness Month and Stella and Dot has decided to do their part by donating 20% of the proceeds on some fabulous pieces of jewelry to help support this cause.  The proceeds will go to the HollyRod Foundation, which is a charity that Holly Robinson Peete started when she found out that her son has Autism.  You can read more about her story here.

Since I have taught several (8) Autistic kids during my teaching career, this is is cause that is near and dear to my heart.  I truly loved getting to work with these 6 kiddos - they provided me with an abundance of laughs, a few tears, and too many life lessons to count.

The spirit bracelet is probably my favorite item on the list - for $29 it really adds a lot of color and spark to your spring and summer wardrobe.  The La Folie necklace is a best-seller for me - it is cute, simple, and affordable and adds just a bit of pop.  It also looks great paired with a long, layering necklace.

I also LOVE the new jewelry rolls that Stella and Dot have released - these are the perfect way to travel with your jewelry, and this print is just too cute.  (Just click on any of the items above for a link to my website).

My goal this month is to sell 25 items for Autism Awareness and to book at least 3 shows that benefit Autism Awareness in April.  I already have lots of shows booked this month, so I only have a few dates left.  Please let me know if you are interested in ordering or booking a show!
