I am profoundly grateful to Mary Sutton Corona, a member of the Lori Bonn community and breast cancer survivor, who openly and honestly agreed to share her story here in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. I hope she inspires you as much as she has inspired me.

XOXO,

Lori

One of the best perks of my job is witnessing the emotional connection that women share over my jewelry. It’s especially sweet when it’s between a mother and daughter.

Tracy and Taylor are a mother daughter pair whose special relationship is both beautiful and inspiring. It is an honor to be part of the rituals (or, as they affectionately call it, “Bonn-ding”) that keep them close.

This month Taylor (daughter) is graduating from college (with Honors, I might add), and to congratulate her on this special achievement and acknowledge her four years of hard work and dedication, Tracy (mom) surprised her with a new Bonn Bons bracelet (seen above).

But check out this momma’s creativity! To accompany her new arm candy, she wrote a gorgeous letter to her daughter using the names of the new bracelet’s Bonn Bons as part of her story. (Warning: you might want to have a tissue box nearby.)

Thank you, Tracy and Taylor, for continually inspiring me and sparkling on the inside and out.

To all other mothers and daughters, I wish you all an equally unwavering bond, love and appreciation for each other.

Wishing you all a very wonderful Mother’s Day!

XOXO,

Lori

Fall/Winter Trends 1

Hi All,

I was in Hong Kong last week for a trade show called Fashion Access. It's a show that connects Asian manufacturers of handbags, belts, shoes, and a small amount of costume jewelry with designers, importers, chain store buyers, etc. from all over the world. To be honest, I had no real business there, but the show organizers offered me a free airline ticket and I needed a little break from my regular routine. So away I went!

 I_am_enough_Lori_Bonn

A few weeks ago, I did something risky. I opened up to you—the person who collects my jewelry—and told you that making jewelry is not as much fun as it used to be. 

Then, I asked you to share your stories with me. You see, I want to help spread a message by creating a movement of women who know that they are enough, and who wear their true colors with pride.

I wasn’t sure I would receive even one response, but within hours, my inbox was flooded. I asked the universe for something, and you answered. You opened up, and you showed me the path toward loving my job again.

Your stories touched me, and I want to thank you. Many of you have given me stories that, over the course of the next few months, I will ask permission to share with our community.

I’ve always had a personal motto that if it stops being fun, it is time for a change. No matter how smart or logical something seems, I know that if I am not having fun, I will not have the energy to keep it going. 

That’s why I originally created the Lori Bonn line.  I wanted out of my 9-5 corporate life.  I wanted to explore the world, surround myself with color and beauty, and build something that would evolve with me as I went through life. And, for 22 years, it has been all that and more and I am eternally grateful.

But something changed, recently …

My career stopped being as much fun as it used to be. 

When I looked deep in my soul, I realized that creating jewelry wasn’t enough. I wanted to find a way to connect in a more meaningful way. I wanted to give back.

My solution was to go out and meet with the women who collect my jewelry—women just like you.

Your stories have been inspiring, funny, and humbling. 

I met a woman who lost so much weight that she and her husband can both fit inside an old pair of her jeans. 

I met a woman who told me that her family members have all been given explicit instructions about what to do in the event of a fire: “GRAB THE BONN BONS!” 

My favorite, though, might have been the woman who told me that while I design Lori Bonn jewelry, she makes it her own.

This is exactly what I want for the women who buy my jewelry. I want you to make it your own.

 And so here comes my request …

 While traveling to meet so many of you, it occurred to me that although there is no type of woman who collects my jewelry, we do have a commonality. We share a connection. In fact, one mother told me that while she was at her daughter’s wedding, she bonded with the groom’s mother over their shared love of Bonn Bons. (I think it goes without saying that this is not the fate of most in-laws!)

 Knowing that we share a distinctive bond, I’m writing to ask if I can include you in my community. I want to give back to all the women who have purchased my jewelry by sharing the inspiring, funny, and humbling stories I receive, and I hope that you will do the same by sharing your stories with me on my blog.

You see, my jewelry is a representation of women. I believe that we are all artists with unique perspectives.  We are all beautiful one of a kinds.

Will you allow me to share my stories? And will you share yours as well?

I can't wait to hear from you!

Always,

Lori
