If you're a regular reader then you've probably heard me wax poetic about my love for friend, entrepreneur, and Chicago jewelry designer, Jess of Jess LC. I can't gush enough about how much I admire the person Jess is and the business she's created. She's been a huge inspiration of mine with Rue and is my go to person for all business related questions. So, I'm honored to tell you about her new fall line of necklaces: The Franklin Collection!
I love all of Jess's collections, but I have to say, I think Franklin is the best yet! The reason being because it's more than just about jewelry. If you follow Jess's blog you know that her life's purpose is helping others makeunder their lives - finding the best version of themselves already inside.
And the Franklin necklaces are daily reminders of living a life with intention, as they each have a special message carved out in braille: be brave, be present, be thankful, dream bigger, breathe.
I love the braille as a tactile reminder that's both subtle and powerful. I often reach down during the day to run my fingers along the surface of my necklace to remind myself.
Here I am with Jess, both wearing our Franklin necklaces. I wear the "dream bigger" one while Jess opts for "be present." I can't tell you how many people literally want to buy the necklace off my neck once they see it and even more so after they learn the story behind Jess's business and purpose. If you're in the market for a new necklace, I highly recommend checking these out!
So, which Franklin message are you?
