'Tis the Season

Liliana Brenner

This Holiday season, we had a special visit at Rally Beads studio—a camera crew from 6ABC News –FYI Philly for a segment on unique, holiday gifts. They interviewed Helen and Lisa, and filmed displays of our bracelet collections and of-the-moment pendants.  It was fun, but nerve-wracking to be on camera!   It was interesting to us to see how their footage got boiled down to a short minute long segment.  6ABC zeroed in on how our gemstone jewelry tells a story, how each piece is custom-made—a special and unique statement, and how some of our most popular bracelets, like those in rose quartz, give back to causes like breast cancer care for women.  In less than a minute’s time they go to the very essence of what Rally Beads is all...

Destination Villanova

Maureen Dodson

Full circle, one bead at a time…. This Fall, as the class of 2021 settles in and prepares for the next great adventure of their lives, we are preparing for ours!   We are proud to announce that Rally Beads are available for the first time at a University Bookstore—our RISE collection in blue and white— genuine lapis, blue spotstone and white jade—ready to stand up and cheer for the Villanova Wildcats, ready for anything, and everything. We love being on campus! And we have always cheered for the Wildcats! Rally Beads was started with a big idea…how to capture passion and energy and wear it proudly, and stylishly? We loved the idea of working with beads—each variation of jade or agate or jasper, beautiful, complicated and meaningful—strung together with symbolic...

  Lots of good things can happen over a pot of coffee and a plate of muffins, especially when those gathered are dynamic and creative women!  Recently I met Leona Davis, a  lovely woman and music teacher with a  calligraphy business and a nonprofit “Forget Me Knot Flowers” which takes wedding and event flowers and repurposes them for  people in nursing homes, rehab centers and shelters.  Lisa Blaber recently met Jenna Rayevsky who, along with her four year daughter Winnie, had stopped one morning to admire Lisa’s garden.  Jenna also has a home based business—creating wedding flower arrangements that are both winsome and exuberant, much like Jenna herself.  These new acquaintances all had something in common with Rally Beads—a passion to create something simple and beautiful and a purpose to...

IN PRAISE OF SISTERHOOD

Maureen Dodson

Over the last several months, we have had the chance to make some celebratory custom bracelets--including a set of girls' weekend bracelets with a custom-engraved tag proclaiming "SLUTS"--not what we expected either from one of our favorite customers, a sassy grandmother and local legend with deep Texas roots, and a sense of humor.  "Southern Ladies Utterly Texan" is the mantra of this group of spirited ladies, getting together for weekends of love and laughter for more than 50 years.  Love it! Another set of girlfriend bracelets walked with a group of women--friends since their uniform-and-saddle-shoes days at Catholic school--on behalf of one of their own and her fight against breast cancer. They were looking for something a little more chic and a little less pink than what is readily available and we were happy to oblige....

We Rally with Women Against Abuse

Maureen Dodson

  Rally Beads' studio continues to be a hive of activity! We are inspired daily by our customers, their great style and their generous spirits; we love when Rally Beads are given as a gift or to commemorate an accomplishment or to support a cause. This month, we were honored to create a special bracelet for Women Against Abuse (WAA) in solidarity with those who bring a voice to ending domestic violence.  We can't wait to attend the Philadelphia Chapter of WAA's "Dish It Up" event; Philadelphia's only all-female chef competition on March 29. (Tickets are still available at www.womenagainstabuse.org).  We will debut our iPledge® bracelet at this event, but are giving a  preview of one or our WAA Support bracelets; purple Brazilian agate, a resolute stone of strength paired with a silver...
