"You make me proud to spell my name W-O-M-A-N." - Maya Angelou
Inspired by Maya Angelou’s quote, we designed our bronze WOMAN bracelet for Breast Cancer Awareness Month as a message of strength. It’s handmade, and spelled out in braille. We’re proud to continue our support of Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national organization committed to helping women affected by breast cancer live with the best quality of life.

For our featured artist, Kerry Mansfield, nature is the closest thing to religion: “I can sit in front of a body of water for hours and I won’t move.”
“I grew up in New Jersey and we would always go to shore in the summertime. I have always felt the calmest and happiest by the water.”
"There’s something amazing about feeling incredibly small in the face of something incredibly large – a sense of open expansion and quiet and peace."
"I grew up in New Jersey and we would always go to shore in the summertime. I have always felt the calmest and happiest by the water."
"I will only go up to my knees in the ocean. I have a really healthy respect and fear for the ocean."

A sneak peek on what you can expect in their Resort 2014 collections…
"In our eyes, cobras are symbolic and iconic in Indian mythology, representing transformation and change." – Mara Hoffman
"For Resort 2014, we take our cues from the beauty of one of the Earth’s treasures: Amazonia. We’ve re-worked, enlarged and enhanced the flora and fauna of the rain forest into bold and graphic prints.” – ViX’s Paula Hermanny
"I wanted to design a line for the sun worshiping traveler. I headed to the Cayman Islands for our photo shoot and the colors I used in the line are reminiscent of the bright, breezy sunlit shades that make up the beautiful seascape.” – L*Space’s Monica Wise
“Paradise is the ultimate inspiration for the collection this year. The variety of blues, greens and corals in the collection bring to life those island destinations we dream of visiting.” – Luli Fama’s Lourdes “Luli” Hanimian
