We are currently in love with a new accessory brand from Los Angeles, The Giving Keys!
Not only are the finished necklaces a thing of beauty, but also the message behind them. The Giving Keys create one of a kind necklaces out of old refurbished keys that were left to be thrown away, and polishes them up and gives them new life. Each and every key is unique and has its own story, like every one of us. Stamped with inspirational words like HOPE, DREAM, STRENGTH, DREAM or COURAGE the wearer chooses a word to give them the message in their own life when they need it, and is encouraged to pay it forward and pass it along to someone else who needs it.
In the same way The Giving Keys gives life to keys, it does the same with employees. The Giving Keys employs those transitioning out of homelessness and gives them a safe place to get back on their feet.
At Bella Maas, we love the reaction our customers have had to these necklaces and hearing their stories about what word has lifted them up or who they've gifted it to. We believe in the vision and want to spread the message and inspiration!
Here is a video of a look inside the company and how the necklaces are made:

FYI we cannot keep these on the shelf - and because they are vintage and handmade, it can take time in between shipments. SO we've just received a large shipment - if there is a word you love, stop by soon for the best selection!
