Shop for a Cause With Ella B Jewelry

Everything She Wants loves to support designers who champion a good cause.  And with its tree silhouette necklace, Ella B Jewelry supports the Amani Children's Foundation, an organization that works in Kenya to help orphaned-and-HIV-positive-babies get the care and medical attention they need and eventually find adoptive families.

Ella B Jewelry is designed by Elizabeth Bradburn, who studied jewelry design and started selling her accessories online in 2010 after being asked to make pieces for brides and private clients.

"I've been making jewelry for as long as I can remember," the 29-year-old says.  "Starting a complete line had always been a dream of mine, and it seemed like the universe was telling me to go for it."  Having an online business also allows Bradburn to stay at home with her almost two-year-old son.

The Indianapolis based artisan fashioned the tree silhouette necklace after the organization's logo.  The $32 necklace comes in sterling silver and gold plate and Bradburn donates 100% of the profits to the Amani Children's fund.

So don't delay, shop for a cause today.

  1. I have a great idea about that Ella B tree necklace. Why don't they put little sapphire gemstones that represents a fruit.

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
