Mama Bracelets started out as nursing reminder bracelets. It quickly evolved into personalized jewelry as well as jewelry that supported various causes (Rett Syndrome, Autism, Lung Cancer, and SIDS). Once Ella was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) the focus turned toward SMA research support. To date Mama Bracelets and its customers have domed just over $3,200 to the research efforts through organizations such as Families of SMA (FSMA) and the Jennifer Trust for SMA (JTSMA) to name two.
In 2013 ellaWEAR Jewelry was created to help fund the purchase of a home for Ella and the necessary modifications therein. Borrowing the "party" idea we raised over $2,500 in pure profit for Ella needs.
Both businesses rolled into one with the goal of helping children & families with SMA...albeit our own child or the children of others...they have provided much comfort and support in the combined 3+ years they have existed.
The time has come for us to close the cyber-doors to Mama Bracelets and ellaWEAR Jewelry. Running a business takes a lot of effort, mentally as well as physically...not to mention financially. Currently our beloved business is just "above water" and we feel it best to take what we've earned and put it toward our family's needs.
Over the past 3+ years we have met with and worked with so many wonderful people. We feel we have made a positive difference in many people's lives if only for a short time. We prided ourselves on the fact that our "Support & Awareness" products were always made with high quality, long-lasting materials with the idea that those who purchased them could wear them for years to come. Our ellaWEAR Collection followed the same suit in being high quality jewelry.
So our cyber-doors will be closed for good on February 15, 2014.
We have marked EVERYTHING on the website on sale for up to 75% OFF. A great time to get some incredible jewelry at incredible prices. As always, the proceeds will benefit SMA research as well as Ella Sabine Casten.

Thank you to everyone for always providing so much support in so many ways, with Mama Bracelets and ellaWEAR Jewelry being just two of those ways.
