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 Marbelous—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.
