Fall is my favorite time of year. I’m a sucker for cute jackets, turtlenecks, boots and of course, fun scarves! Therefore I’m super excited to be able to offer you a chance to win your favorite scarf for fall from Smiles by JEM! Smiles by JEM was founded by two friends, Janelle and Megan, who wanted share their passion for fashion, culture and travel with the rest of the world. Focusing their efforts on women’s accessories, travel, and philanthropy, they founded JEM. Smiles by JEM offers both handmade jewelry as well as handwoven scarves to compliment your perfect fall look.
JEM’s jewelry is made in Ventura County at the homes of Janelle and Megan. These two partners also work in Thailand with local artists to design and make their beautiful scarves. The pair have been traveling to Thailand since 2010. After meeting many local artists and seeing the beautiful items they produced, Janelle and Megan decided to design scarves while working in Thailand to create them. They fly to Thailand 3-4 times a year where they spend a few months designing and making scarves which they then bring back to the United States to sell. In addition they also purchase their beads in Thailand (as well as Peru and the United States) and bring them back to the USA to make their jewelry.
JEM’s mission is a commitment to delivering the highest quality handcrafted scarves while giving back to the local communities where their products are made. They give 10 percent of their proceeds back to help develop and sustain local organizations. They donate 10% of their proceeds from scarf sales to SOS Children’s Villages in Thailand, and 10% of the proceeds from their jewelry sales to Food Share in Ventura. Each piece comes in an organza gift bag with an insert about their company and the charities their support.
