Theresa Gray, mother of 4 young children, started her jewelry business, Treasures & Jewels, about 5 years ago in an effort to help support local charities. Mrs. Gray designs and creates a line of Sterling Silver and Swarovski Crystal Jewelry with meaning and inspiration.
While her mother-in-law was dying of cancer, she was inspired to create a salvation bracelet called ÂThe Present Â Live not in the memory of the past, nor for the promises of the future, but live for the gift that is today, the present.Â The bracelet was designed to help bring spiritual healing. It is made using six different colored Swarovski crystals, each crystal with its own biblical scripture and a sterling silver cross charm.
To help promote awareness of breast cancer, Mrs. Gray designed a bracelet using pink Swarovski crystals and crystal pearls, and a pink ribbon charm. She donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the ÂPink RibbonÂ bracelet to the American Cancer Society. A bookmark is also available using Rose Quartz, Swarovski Crystals and Rose Quartz.
In addition to the American Cancer Society, Treasures & Jewels has made available for sale, and/or donated numerous gift items to charitable organizations including, the American Red Cross, various local churches, CHOC Hospital, M.O.P.S., Muscular Dystrophy, Nightlight Christian Adoption Agency, Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation, and various local hospitals, all in the effort to raise awareness and money for research.
A unique bracelet designed to contribute to the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric Aids Foundation is currently underway.
Most recently, Treasures & Jewels participated in a fundraiser to support the 20:1 Third Grade classroom size reduction for the Saddleback Valley Unified School District. Due to the efforts of everyone involved, monies in excess of $300k were raised and they were successful in implementing this program district wide.
During the nations most tragic moments on September 11, 2001, Mrs. Gray designed a patriotic bracelet entitled ÂFreedomÂ. This patriotic bracelet symbolizes our nationÂs strength, unity and patriotism.Â An exclusive "FreedomÂ B-1 Bomber bracelet has been designed for the B-1 Store at the Dyess Air.
Mrs. Gray has also had requests to design patriotic bracelets for the widows and families of our valiant men and women who sacrifice their lives for our country and in memory of those who lost their lives innocently, on September 11, 2001. The bracelets are made using a silver charm of the World Trade Center or a military charm. This bracelet can be custom made with a charm of your choosing. A portion of the proceeds of the sale of the special order ÂFreedomÂ bracelet is donated to the American Red Cross Â Armed Forces Emergency Fund.
Additional gift items available at Treasures & Jewels include, bridal tiaras, first communion headpieces, crystal bookmarks, crystal rosaries, crystal rosary bracelets, crystal devotional chaplets, cigar box purses, tooth fairy bracelets and tooth fairy pillows.
