A friend from Rhode Island recently introduced to me a very cool jewelry company: Alex and Ani. Carolyn Rafaelian, the company’s founder and of course a designer, created this company ten years ago in RI. She built Alex and Ani by combining the ideas of inner strength and environmentally friendly materials. It seems to me that the goal of the jewelry, is for you to look down at your bracelet, necklace, or whatever and feel good about wearing it. It might sound cheesy, but we all need something to feel good about. So we might as well have fun jewelry that helps the planet. Anyway, I am particularly a fan of the “single charm bangles” and had a hard time narrowing down which to buy. Following my love of French, I just had to get one with a Fleur de Lis.
