In just a few years the company has been fortunate to experience great expansion and continued growth, introducing new techniques, mixing textures and precious metals. SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY COMMITMENT. The date was September 10, 2001, while on a United Airlines flight 93 to San Francisco, Evelyn had no idea that the exact airplane she was aboard would be the very subject of immense tragedy the next day. Working for an airline, bustling in and out of cities and countries was business as usual; but what happened the following day was anything but an experience that touched Evelyn for life. This happened to be the second time Evelyn has saved herself from a terrible accident. God gave Evelyn more than one opportunity to continue working in what she believes and is passionate for, her jewelry business can help communities in need and make a positive impact in the efforts of fighting global issues.
