Best friends Lutece and Tess imagined that they could make the world a better place through art and friendship. But instead of waiting to grow up to pursue their dreams, the two birthday-sharing buddies took charge of their mission and created Marbelousâ€”a bespoke jewelry company that offers both style and social impact with every purchase. Since launching their jewelry business in 2013 at the ripe age of 8 years-old, the miniature duo, with the support of their mothers, have successfully landed coveted distribution of their necklaces in fashion-centric boutiques around the world.
Their one-of-a-kind necklaces are crafted from clay in Brooklyn and earned their bragging rights from being a cult favorite of celebrities like Christy Turlington, Alan Cumming and Jane Krakowski.
Staying true to their mission of building a socially responsible business, 10% of their net profits are donated to non-profits. Last winter, the girls partnered with Amy Poehler to create a limited edition Smart Girls Marbelous necklace to raise funds for the Autism Speaks organization.
Each necklace is painted in spirit-fueling earth tone color palettes with dynamic swirl textures that hang on a natural silk cord.
