I can never have enough jewelry especially when it is by Lisa Lehmann of Studio Jewel, aka @TheBeadGirl. Lisa is a one-woman operation who loves playing with metal and fire between home schooling her kids whose inspiration comes from within and from fellow artists like famous sculptor, Alexander Calder. She handcrafts each incredible piece and is just as nice in real life as anyone could ever be.

She brought handmade keychains for everyone!

I had the opportunity to meet Lisa at Type A Mom Conference in September after being first introduced to her jewelry by Janine (aka Twincident) earlier in the year. I spied this incredible Haiti Relief Necklace Janine wore to a blogger get together and had to have it especially after she explained the significance of each of the elements in the necklace.

We need to SURROUND those impacted by this disaster with HOPE – thus the significance of the silver circle encompassing the hope disk. It will take our faith, our hope and our love to feed their emotional needs…but it will also take our hands. We need to use WOOD, STONE and METAL, as seen in the individual beads, to rebuild what has been lost – to rebuild lives torn apart. We must LINK together, as represented by the silver chain, as a people united in order to serve others and share our HOPE for a new and better future.

Lisa donates $25 of each Haiti Relief Necklace to Christian World Outreach, Inc. for the work they have been doing in Haiti since 1979.  Isn’t that great?!?

After getting to know Lisa, she’s definitely the kind of small business owner that I’m always happy to support. She’s kind, generous, honest, and the sort of person you instantly bond with. Lisa delivers high quality handmade jewelry that is one of a kind while also providing exceptional service and friendship.

Shop for The Haiti Relief Necklace, custom stamped MOM jewelry, sculptural earrings, intricate necklaces, simple or statement rings, and all the other amazing pieces by Lisa through her Etsy store where you can get free shipping on all items through Thanksgiving weekend.  Lisa’s also a social media queen! Her Studio Jewel store has a Facebook page and she’s always on Twitter!

I was selected for this sponsorship by the Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity, as I do. 

I won my Haiti Relief Necklace through Janine’s giveaway and Lisa sent me a gorgeous bracelet just because she’s super nice like that.  I’ve personally purchased items from Lisa, including 2 that I found while “researching” this post!
