Our New Venture!

by Trisha-and-Amy on October 15, 2013

AAblogWe are so excited to announce the pre-launch of ASH + AMES, a new social-selling jewelry company that empowers women and gives back to developing countries. We are in Beta testing now — we were in SF last week, and will be in Chicago next week. Here’s some info about the new company. We’ll be updating more as we go…

For those of you who have enjoyed our books and Lifetime TV show Pretty Wicked Moms, you’ll know that our efforts have always been about empowerment. As moms and women, we all have a unique story…and the opportunity to define the ‘next chapter’ on our own terms. This is in part how ASH + AMES was born – to help smart, savvy moms re-invent themselves and launch their own busi- nesses as ‘Stylists.’

Many of the ASH + AMES pieces – necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings — have been created uniquely for the brand, while others have been hand-picked and curated from around the world, including Spain, France and Sri Lanka.

Giving back is fundamental to the mission of ASH + AMES. As part of our collection, we are showcasing special pieces hand-made from women in developing countries, starting with Haiti. By providing exposure for these wonderful artists, ASH + AMES is helping them perfect their trades while better providing for their families. All proceeds from these sales will be donated back to Haiti.
