Look good and do good all at the same time!
Happy Friday! Are you all set for Mother’s Day this weekend? If not, we’d like to suggest these limited edition earrings created by Mora to benefit the Asheville Humane Society’s critical care fund for sick or injured animals.
We are donating 15% of the sale price of each pair of these pretties. The earrings were launched at the in-store fundraising benefit “Pooches & Pearls” this week (party pics to come … there were kittens!). Eight pairs remain, in both post and French wire styles. All are sterling silver and $65 per pair. Call, email, or come by and purchase the PURRRRRR-fect pair! (Shipping costs just $5 in the lower 48!)
Have a Beautiful Weekend!
Join us for our first big event at Mora, and support the Asheville Humane Society.
Let us treat you and your friends to a fun filled night of Pooches & Pearls.
Spread the word, and see you soon at Mora!
Valerie Shrader is one happy customer. Here she is sporting the diamond-stamped mini pendant that was included in Mora’s opening night swag bag. But, where in the world is is she? (See caption for answer.)
We want to see pictures of you wearing Joanna’s jewelry. (Exotic locations not required!) Email your photos to Marthe (firstname.lastname@example.org) or post them on our Facebook page. We’ll add them to this post and keep a running jewelry travelogue!
Quite the jet setter, Sara Riley has already lived in Argentina, Chile, Spain, and the United States. Where was her last adventure in an ovals pendant from Mora?
We can (and love!) being able to make that special piece of jewelry you’ve always dreamed of wearing. For example, Joanna worked closely with a client to design this gorgeous custom earring. It’s sterling silver filigree with two red sapphires and a black diamond drop. So enchanting!
Last week Mora received a invitation from InStore magazine to enter their “Coolest Store” contest. Even though we’d only been open a week, we decided to go for it! The entry form required interior and exterior photos of the store, and Joanna snapped these beauties. What do you think? Is Mora the coolest small jewelry store in the country? Fingers crossed!
When Joanna calls up from her studio and says, “Have you got a minute? I’ve got new jewelry to deliver,” I start doing a little dance inside (OK, it’s usually a clearly visible booty shake!). Here are some brand new earrings and a necklace she delivered this week.
As you can see, we’re really into pearls right now. Maybe because it’s springtime and we can wear our whites and linens again. Maybe because we’re surrounded by gorgeous blossoming trees. Maybe just because pearls are fresh and classic and it’s fun to put a creative Mora twist on them … whatever the reason, we hope you love these super cute new designs.
Saturday was the grand opening celebration of Mora. It was a beautiful spring night, and the turnout was amazing! The lovely flower arrangements we received throughout the day were the perfect final touches to our store. We are so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from our families, friends, and the incredible Asheville community. Success! So happy!
Here’s a slideshow from the festivities. The photos were taken by Stevie Howell and Devin Buell. Our beautiful models for the evening were Liz Gilliam, Sara Riley, Kari Rinn, Valerie Shrader, and Margaret Smith. We are so grateful for their help.
Look forward to seeing you at Mora soon!
