Jewels with a Purpose
New to The Country Friends Consignment Shop in Rancho Santa Fe is Jewels with a Purpose, a line of on-trend Italian necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, with 40 percent of sales donated to TCF’s designated charities. Founder Eliza Friedman also sells her jewelry line at charitable events with a percentage of purchases benefitting a variety of causes.
“My inspiration and role model has always been my late father, a senior priest in Romania, an extraordinary man, a visionary, a forward thinker who made a huge difference in the community,” she says. “Growing up in that environment, these principles were instilled in me from a young age and as I grew up, became my passion.” Since 2005, Friedman has raised funds for more than 50 nonprofits on the East Coast. Now relocated to San Diego from Atlanta, she is working with local charities to help those in need. (678.641.2631, www.jewelswithapurpose.com) ANDREA NAVERSEN
