Heather M Design Raises Awareness One Mile at a Time

Share Article

Fashion jewelry designer is creating unique pieces for people who want to raise awareness and support breast cancer research.

Walk 60 miles? In three days? Most people would say “no way, I can’t do it.” “Sorry, I won’t do it.” For jewelry designer, Heather Maietta, the response was, “sign me up!” What’s even more challenging is the fact that in order to walk, she has to raise at least $2,200 for the cause.

The desire to participate in the 2006 Boston 3-Day Breast Cancer walk was the inspiration for the Heather M Design awareness jewelry line. The company’s founder, Heather Maietta, has developed a collection of pieces to include watches, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets that feature the pink ribbon, a symbol of breast cancer research and support. “By creating inspiring and unique jewelry geared towards breast cancer research, it increases awareness,” states Heather. "If a person gets asked about a Heather M piece that they are wearing, it opens the door for discussion about why they are wearing it. It is my goal to use my designs as a method of prevention.”

The Awareness collection is geared especially toward those who are looking for an attractive and fashionable way to show their support for a cure. The affordable awareness pieces range in price from $22.00 to $108.00, and are available at the newly-launched http://www.heathermdesign.com. 100% of all after tax proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, a long-time advocate for breast cancer education and research. This year, over 41,000 men and women will lose their battle with breast cancer. Heather M Design’s Awareness Collection is a way to contribute to the fight against this deadly disease.

Heather Maietta not only talks the talk, but she also walks the walk -- literally. In addition to creating beautiful awareness jewelry, Heather is also a participant in the Breast Cancer 3-Day. Together, Heather and her teammates, Wild Women Originals, will take to the streets August 4-6, walking 60 miles in three days.

Wild Women Originals has been wildly walking for a cure for breast cancer since 2003. Together, the team has raised over $1,914,179.99 (to date) to support research and treatment of this deadly disease. The team consists of 143 women...and growing, together, walking for a cure. For more information on joining the Wild Women Originals Team, visit the team website at http://www.teamwwo.com.

Heather M’s website also features an extensive collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings made from sterling silver, precious and semi-precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, Swarovski crystals, vintage glass and other high quality materials. In addition to their current collection, Heather M offers custom pieces as well, working with the customer to design unique jewelry that is specifically created for them.
