Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 7, 2008
Atlanta-based Jill Leslie Designs today announced the creation of a new line of jewelry raising awareness for breast cancer research, that is also environmentally friendly.
The uniquely elegant, contemporary bracelet is designed from hand-forged, recycled gold with a delicate "ribbon" twist, highlighted by a single pink sapphire stone. The bracelet can then be customized with initial charms, which can signify the initials of the wearer, a relative, friend, or anyone whose life has been touched by breast cancer.
Ranging in price from $285 for Sterling Silver to $750 for 18K Gold, (a 14K version is also available), a percentage of the profits of the sale of the bracelet will be donated to breast cancer research organizations.
Jill Morton of Jill Leslie Designs said, "Important people in my life, family and friends, have all been affected by breast cancer and I designed this bracelet in honor of them and in honor of the women who are currently battling this disease, as well as in memory of those who lost the battle. Every piece of jewelry I design has a deep personal meaning to me, and I am honored to be able to design a piece that will potentially have that same kind of meaning to everyone who wears it. I also was very aware of keeping it "green" by using recycled materials and utilizing only local resources - thereby making this a piece everyone will be proud to own and wear."
About Jill Leslie Designs
Jill's artistic skills were honed and crafted under the direction of Lamar Dodd's renowned Studies Abroad Program in the medieval hilltop village of Cortona Italy, an honor bestowed by invitation only. It was that extraordinary experience, combined with her many experiences in life, that has inspired her organic, delicate, yet sophisticated artistic style. This unique style is evidenced in her latest jewelry creations. 18K gold, sparkling diamonds, and a palette of beautifully hand-picked semi-precious gemstones are now her canvas, heavily influenced by her background in paint, color, graphic and fabric design.
