Our designer friend and philantrophist, Joan Hornig has done it again. She reacted quickly to global tragedy and created a Pearl & Rock Crystal Necklace to raise funds for the victims of the typhoon in the Philippines.
Joan Hornig Jewelry is designed to make a statement-and a difference. In 2003 Joan Hornig merged her passion for jewelry and philanthropy. Since the company’s inception, Joan has been donating 100% of the profits on each piece of jewelry to the charity of the purchaser’s choice. The Joan Hornig Philanthropy is Beautiful® collection of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings uses 18k gold, sterling silver, and various precious and semi-precious stones. Joan draws inspiration from her travels around the world and from her art history background.
To date, the Joan B. Hornig Foundation has donated to more than 800 worthy initiatives around the world addressing issues such as education, medical research, social services, the arts, animal rights and environmental protection. Limited edition pieces, which Joan designed exclusively for organizations such as UNICEF, Circle of women, Help USA, ASPCA, the Girl Scouts, and Haiti relief, continue to make a lasting difference. Her work has been given by first ladies Laura Bush and Michele Obama to visiting dignitaries to The White House.
