Forgive me Blah-g for I have sinned. It has been six months since my last entry about the Gracelet. So allow me to refresh your memory.
New series coming out. Phoenix Five. Most popular freshman’s secret journals are exposed. One of the characters, Vanessa Riley (check out her board on Pintrest) is a full-on over achiever. At least that’s what she wants people to believe. Anyway, she loves stockpiling awards. Among the many, she is in hot pursuit of—I’ll have her tell you:
“I entered the Girl Scout’s Young Women of Distinction contest. First place: Gold Award! Super prestigious. My entry is a bracelet with a secret compartment inside an envelope. You write a personal goal on a piece of paper and slip it inside. I named it a Gracelet to remind people to pursue their dreams with grace and to say grace once they achieve them. They are made by Haitian orphans. All proceeds go to their orphanage. I got the sample on Saturday. I’ll take orders Monday. There will be a school named after me by Friday.”
So what did I do? I found a FABULOUS jewelry designer at Gorjana & Griffin and she made Vanessa’s Gracelet. The crazy thing? The real life designer’s name is Vanessa. Here she is. Ah-dorable.
I got to see the first sample on Monday. Look! I’m a hand model.
That envelope flap lifts up and there’s a slot inside. It’s just the right size for hiding a slip of paper that states your secret mission. You can write anything from: Be a better friend to let my bangs grow out. It can be world-changing or selfish and shallow. That’s the beauty. No one sees it but you. When your mission is completed scrap the scrap and write a new one. Do you love or LOVE?
Okay now listen up. This is where you come in. You will have a choice of gold or silver for the envelope. FYI I’m gold, all the way. You will also get to choose from 3 different color cords. The cord will look like the 5.0 inch below (only not poo colored.)
There are lots of colors to choose from. This is me thinking I’m a designer, trying to choose 3.
There were so many to choose from. And I being a consistent gold and brown, can not possibly speak for you. Are you a pink-silver? A blue-gold? A green-gold? Help me help you. Here are the color samples. Tell me which color you like by giving me its number. Top 3 win.
I should get the next sample in a month. I’ll post it then. When all is said and done it will go on sale when P5 launches in September 2013. Proceeds go to a charity you choose.
Vanessa, you think of everything!!!
