Denver, CO, October 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- When difficult times arise in life it’s nice to know that you have support to get through the challenging journey. Colee Sescilla, owner and founder of ME Jewelry, brings that support and inspiration to people who need it most. Using powerful and natural stones, the designs from ME Jewelry connect people with the healing power of the earth. This strength allows people to forge ahead and live their dreams.
Colee is no stranger to adversity and challenges. Having spent the majority of her career in corporate America, she was faced with a difficult job loss. Colee decided to make lemonade out of lemons, and pulled together her creative spirit and ingenuity. Adding all of her knowledge from previous positions Colee created a delicate and beautiful jewelry line, unique and enticing packaging, a company website, marketing collateral, and a customer base.
While growing up in Colorado, Colee learned to appreciate her surroundings and the importance of giving back. Colee’s dream is to create a sustainable environmentally friendly company that uses local vendors and local people to help in the growth of ME Jewelry. ME Jewelry reflects this by working with We Made This, a sewing program within the African Community Center of Denver. Instead of outsourcing her packaging to places like China or India, Colee pays above fair wages to the women at the non-profit for their time and services. Ashley Nemiro, We Made This program director boasts, “It’s a perfect partnership. We both benefit from this relationship, plus Colee has helped promote the organization through her jewelry line and website.”
By sharing inspiration and offering insight into her success and healing, Colee has created a jewelry line that makes people feel good and look beautiful. Collector Cory Bryant swears each piece of her ME Jewelry has helped her heal faster (in recovering from major back surgery) and has given her the courage to pursue her lifelong dream of acting. “The pieces are simple yet beautiful. Every time I look at my wrist it helps me remember what I need to focus on. Sometimes they just remind me to slow down and breathe.”
Colee explains, “I want to help people believe in themselves, and I think each piece of jewelry offers a little bit of insight on how they can do just that.” Every piece includes an explanation of the stone’s power, such as “compassion,” “confidence,” or “willpower.” A thoughtful sentiment is included with the jewelry, and is all packaged in a sturdy yet simple, ME Jewelry handmade case.
After the job loss Colee relied on her network of friends, past business contacts and colleagues to help make MEJewelry the success it is today. Wanting to further the cycle of sharing and support, MEJewelry donates 3% of profits to charitable contribution. “I believe everything comes back around, the more you give, the more you receive. I also believe you can make a living doing what you love!”
ME Jewelry is an environmentally friendly and socially conscientious company designed and created in Denver, CO. Made from semi-precious stones, sterling silver or 14K Gold Vermeil, every piece of jewelry is created with the intention to inspire and heal. MEJewelry is available online at MEOnlineStore.com
