A Collaboration: Project Heart Yourself / Infinite Hope

In October, my friend Jenny (hairstylist extraordinaire, the beautiful and talented Jenny Strebe of Confessions of a Hairstylist and founder of Project Heart Yourself) sent me a text message asking if I'd like to work with her on a jewelry piece -- something for breast cancer awareness (but enough with the pink ribbon already). Something a little more honest and special that would really pay tribute to women at all stages of treatment and at any stage of this disease. I love Jenny's style and her commitment to empowering women, and I jumped at the chance to work with her.

As we started brainstorming, we quickly found we were on the same page, and pretty soon had a design in place, a simple infinity symbol, standing for the infinite hope that carries us through some of our darkest days. The Infinity necklaces are now available for purchase here/here, and the proceeds will go to a local organization helping moms who are going through cancer treatments.

Project Heart Yourself is all about empowering women to love themselves, something I've realized is infinitely important to getting through cancer. As Jenny would say, "Loving yourself is one of the hardest but most paramount aspects to life. You do not always have control over what happens to you, or in you but with grace you can accept it and learn to continue living a beautiful life."

If you're interested, you can read the very kind words Jenny's blogger had to say about me here. It had me blushing just a bit, and then nearly in tears. I'm so honored to be a part of this project.

  3. What a lovely necklace! All of the kind words were completely deserved. My husband just bought me an infinity necklace for Valentine's. Such a great symbol with great meaning. Very lovely.
