About Revolutionary Gems

Revolutionary Gems are uncommon jewelry designs created to celebrate the female game changers, past and present, as well as to inspire and motivate women to join them in creating the world of their dreams.

In case you didn't realize, "gems" are more than just precious stones created though nature's generosity for us to adorn ourselves. Gems are also women - like you and me - multiple faceted females who have the power to change the world for the better.

Even if it's just your own little corner of the world....small changes, small gifts of compassion and support, can have a ripple effect. People watch, people listen, even if they don't always agree. You never know who you might reach, and whose life you might change.

We are needed now more than ever. There is so much pain, division and anger in our country right now. I hope the awareness raised by my brand will help alleviate some of it and help soothe our souls.

There are so many causes close to my heart, it was too difficult to choose just one, so special collections will benefit certain causes, such as NAMI - the National Alliance on Mental Illness - for their work on awareness and Suicide Prevention. I chose this because about five years ago my then 24-year old granddaughter took her own life, and broke my heart.

I also support . SPAARC - Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center in Sarasota, Fl, which actively engages in preventing and ending violence against women through addressing and changing social norms that promote it.

This, because I was physically as well as emotionally abused by my first husband for 13 years, and I am still dealing with the after effects. Yes, unfortunately I chose to stay, but I understand why a woman does, and my heart goes out to them.

I also have a "Socially Conscious Style" collection designed with Fair Trade Kazuri beads. These are true artisan ceramic brads which are handmade by women in Kenya. I'm supporting them by buying their beads, and you'll support them by buying jewelry from this collection.

So, I trust my jewelry will not only make you look good, but also feel good, as you will be a "world changing woman" when you choose Revolutionary Gems.
