In January this year, we wrote a story in Cincy Chic about The Sister Accord (click here to read it) and the local jewelry designer, Lisa Robin Jewelry, who was inspired to launch a new line of jewelry for it! Ever since then, I’ve been keeping up with The Sister Accord and wanting to get involved!
In a nutshell, The Sister Accord works with girls and young women to build healthy relationships to eradicate bullying and violence. As a new mom to a little girl, I couldn’t be more proud of what they’re doing for the community and our little ladies in particular.
So, when Sonia, the founder of The Sister Accord, needed our help to get the word out about her upcoming “Buy Something Beautiful…for Your Sister” Fundraising Event, I jumped at the chance! It’s on Nov. 9 at Macy’s downtown and there are LOTS of perks for attendees (including a 25% store-wide discount!!!). Plus it’s for a really great cause. You can click here to RSVP for the event and go to www.thesisteraccord.com to learn more about this AMAZING organization doing such great things for our next generation!
One of my favorite local designers, Lisa Robin Jewelry, is partnering with author Sonia Jackson Myles to launch a new jewelry collection based on Myles’ book titled “The Sister Accord: 51 Ways to LOVE Your Sister.”
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the bracelets will be donated to The Sister Accord Foundation which has three global areas of focus including educating girls and women, enlightening girls and women of the Power of Sisterhood and eradicating bullying and violence against girls and women.
The Sister Accord jewelry collection is made of exclusively designed sterling silver charms on a pearl bracelet, all of which were inspired by the nine jewels used in the Sister Accord book. The jewels on each charm include love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness, goodness and selflessness. A gerber daisy design completes the collection and is a great gift for girls and women!
“I wanted to use pearls and sterling silver, in the collection, to represent the elegance of the Sister Accord philosophy while maintaining simplicity in the design of each charm,” Lisa said. “The bracelets are deign to be collected and worn stacked. I love how this represents the way the Sister Accord’s nine jewels layer and build upon one another to create relationships.”
The bracelets are available online at www.thesisteraccord.com and www.lisarobinjewelry.com.
