As a three-time cancer survivor, Jill wanted to create AWE Inspired jewelry so she could help other women celebrate their strength and resilience.

AWE Inspired Jewelry's signature piece is the AWE Medallion. Its four teardrops represent the blood, sweat and tears (of sorrow and joy) that define each survivor’s journey. She hopes that by displaying this symbol, it will connect a community of survivors to each other.

What's more to love is every time you buy a piece of AWE, they will donate 20% to a charity of your choice.

Vlada believes everyone in the world should wear a hat. She took that belief and created a line of headwear mixing vintage with modern shapes, vibrant colors, and the highest quality of materials.

Growing up in Ukraine, Vlada’s always had a passion for textiles and design, a tradition passed down from her mother. She wasn’t in the hat business exclusively until she took a course at The Fashion Institute of Technology, where she found her true calling.

As she points out, “During the Great Depression, hats were the perfect wardrobe refresher. The stylish accessory allowed women to update their wardrobe without the hefty price tag that came with a new dress or coat”.
ByVlada styles considers her line unisex.

She scoured swatches and borrowed friends’ feet to find five perfect nude shades to complement women from dark to light (+ a cushioned insole + a 75mm heel!) starting a shoe line that has expanded to include flats and strappy heels.
