The Lucky Girls jewelry collection features two necklaces, one of hand hammered silver and the other of hammered gold with kyanite or pink sapphire gems and the Greek "mati." Eighty percent of the proceeds from each piece will go towards building a computer lab and library for the orphanage.
"We chose the evil eye not for its metaphysical implications, but for the uniqueness and scarcity of the bead in the United States," -Christiana Thanos (Founder/Producer-Lucky Girls). When Sophia Forero saw the work of Lucky Girls, she immediately felt compelled to help. "Giving back to an organization like the Theotokos Orphanage is a natural extension of my philosopy in life and business. I see the Lucky Girls as my little sisters and gifts to me and to the world," says Forero, a former Peace Corp volunteer and Greek-American jeweler who has created pieces to benefit the people of Haiti, Japan, Joplin, Missouri and now India.
