I am so excited to finally be able to share with you all the new items for the Flamingos for a Cure collection. The first two items have been in the works since March when I attended Stationery Academy in New Orleans. There I met the very talented jewelry designer Madeline from Mimosa by ME. We were in between sessions when I started asking her what the process would be like to take my flamingo illustration and turn it into a necklace. Turns out, it is a very easy process and we started working on it over the summer and so my first collaboration was born.
The necklaces and cufflinks are hand made in small batches from recycled bronze. No piece is exactly alike. The flamingo charms are strung on 14K gold necklaces that are 16 inches in length. The cufflinks fit perfectly into the french cuff sleeves and simply turn them to keep them in place. Each necklace and set of cufflinks comes with a dust bag to keep them safe and clean when you aren’t using them.
The second part of the 2015 Flamingos for a Cure collection is my pink and gold color block flamingo. She’s got shades of pink separated by little bits of gold for added elegance.
My favorite flamingo color block product are the new journals. They are a little smaller than my other journals, measuring 5” wide by 7” tall but they come in two binding options: spiral bound and perfect bound. Both feature glossy, laminated covers for durability and lined interior pages. Journals can be personalized in your choice of three colors: signature pink, dark aqua or gold.
Lastly, there are just a couple of additions to the Brave Collection. The first is a 5×7 desk card of the “She who is Brave” quote. This desk card is printed in pink on a white, double thick card stock. The edges are then hand painted in gold. Desk cards can also be framed or pinned to a pin board. Second, is the pink flamingo with gold stripes lucite tray is now available in the 8.5” x 11” size (which also comes with handles for easy carrying).
As always, 20% of the sale of each Flamingos for a Cure item is donated to breast cancer charity. To read more about why I started this collection, please check out the Flamingos for a Cure page.
