Our Community

This year we're celebrating the 20th anniversary of Jewel Ya! It feels like yesterday I engaged a life coach who encouraged me to take the leap of faith in 2003. 

Through 20 years, a priority has been giving back.  We are here and thriving because of the amazing community of women who have supported and shopped with us. Working with charities and causes is important to me personally.  It’s part of my fiber. Over the years we have created signature pieces for charities to resell for fundraising.  We've also done numerous "give back" trunk shows and shopping events where a portion of proceeds were donated to benefit a given cause.

Our 20th Celebration Collab

Whether it's through partnering with a non-profit or uplifting a woman making a difference in our community with our weekly Sunday Share, community means everything.
Now it's time to celebrate! Our keystone project is the creation of four signature designs directly benefiting Fresh Start Women's Foundation and Mother's Grace. We'll donate 25% of every purchase from the collection to these worthy causes. Stay tuned as we unveil the capsule collection designs and share various ways to get involved.

20th Anniversary Charities

I have been wearing Julia's amazing Jewelry since 2003 when I bought my first pair of hoops with gemstone drops. Her jewelry stands the test of time and is my go-to on a day to day basis! Julia Winter is a local treasure!
