Today I’m very excited to share with you guys a company that is giving, loving, and super cute! Entrepreneurs come in all sizes, as is the case with the two 8-year-old best friends who started Marbelous, a handmade necklace business based in Brooklyn. Lutece and Tess, who dreamed of creating a company that revolved around art, friendship, and making the world a better place, are certainly off to a wonderful start! Marbelous donates 10% of their profits to Autism Speaks and are known for using cute catchphrases such as “how MARBELOUS” — could they be more LOVEly? :)
Each necklace is a unique symbol of fashion, giving, and spirit. Due to the handmade nature, each piece’s coloring is slightly different, making it unique to the individual who wears it. All the necklaces feature a hand-stamped M for “Marbelous” and come on either silk cord or suede lace, adding to their simple and chic charm. Many big names have been seen wearing Marbelous necklaces, including Amy Poehler, a comedian most well-known for her work on SNL and Parks and Recreation. Her Smart Girls Campaign collaborated with Marbelous to create a special edition Smart Girls necklace. The glow-in-the-dark neon yellow and black marble represent the Smart Girls logo as an homage to the light bulb!
Today marks the launch of their website, although the company has been operating through both in-person and mail-orders since May 2013. I was fortunate to buy one of their LOVE necklaces (limited edition), and I am absolutely enamored with it! Unlike the other necklaces, this one has the letters LOVE hand-stamped on the marble and now comes with a gold sliding bead, allowing you to adjust the length to your preference. I grabbed mine before they included the slider beads, but I love the length of the necklace, 36 inches, as-is!
Please be sure to check out Lutece and Tess’s amazing business and even grab one for yourself if you fall in love! For large orders of over 50 they can even create a one-of-a-kind design hand-stamped with custom initials just for you! How cool is that? Support art, friendship, and a better world. Hope you all have a MARBELOUS day! :) xo
