We’re more like a family.

Founders Dawn & Ray and family Dawn’s life changed when she heard a voice that said, “You have to live, truly live, before you die.” She retired from sports marketing, and decided to “be the change” she wanted to see in the world. She originally designed the Blessing Bracelet as a gift for a few friends. When stores started ordering them, she quickly had to learn about the business of retail, and the rest is history. Dawn’s husband Ray has been at her side since the beginning, now serving as the company’s CFO. As part of Dawn’s passion for animals, Dawn and Ray incorporated Dawn Center, a not-for-profit dedicated to rescuing unwanted animals. Together, Dawn and Ray have 4 children, 3 dogs, 2 chickens, a conure, and a (very noisy!) rescue parrot.

Heather has been with us since the first blessing bracelet was sold, and is our uber-talented and amazing jewelry designer, product photographer, and basically everything else that keeps us going strong. In her free time, Heather explores and photographs abandoned buildings, and makes one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and art. She is also an animal-whisperer, bird-watcher, and excellent Mom of two.

Xavi & Ana are the heart and soul of our team, hand-making the lion’s share of our inventory, right here in Chicagoland. Ana is an amazing Mom of four, and an all-around stellar human. Xavi is a caretaker of all, including his pair of (cute, yet sometimes smelly!) sugar gliders. His positivity energy everyday infuses every piece of our jewelry, and keeps us all going.
