We are so excited to announce today our wonderful partnership with James Bishop and Bishops Jewellery.
We approached James last year about making us a bespoke necklace to represent our charity.
The necklace has been lovingly handcrafted from Fairtrade 18ct rose gold and Platinum. set with 16 Diamonds in a Pave style to the front. It has been put onto an 18” again 18ct rose gold chain.
Our logo has always been rather eye-catching, with our heart of kindness inside of a box, a real representation of what we do as a charity by giving boxes of kindness to North Devon chemotherapy patients.
Our logo also has a more personal story behind it, in that our Founder Lisa’s husband designed it!
While she had the idea of starting a charity where we look after those going through treatment with supplying items that she would have found useful during treatment, Rob started to direct his energies into creating all the designs and branding of the charity.
He found it gave him something to focus on and a positive way to redirect his feelings as he supported Lisa and their son as they endured difficult chemotherapy regimes as a family.
He feels incredibly proud to see his designs on the boxes as well as a local Stagecoach bus but never had we dreamed as a charity that we could have a jewellery range…
Last year when we approached James about turning our logo into a necklace he was so keen to come on board and help us.
He got straight onto personally making our necklace which we will now release for sale.
James spends his own time making these lovely necklaces for us and has worked closely with us showing such compassion to just what these Necklaces mean to us as a charity.
We hope these necklaces will give a person who has received treatment feel the love behind them when they look back at their chemotherapy or at ChemoHero if we have helped them with our boxes of kindness.
We also hope it’ll help someone wondering what to purchase someone going through treatment the idea of our beautiful necklaces and that the necklace will bring the individual receiving it the strength to keep going as Lisa and Rob have done so during their cancer journey.
These necklaces may also be bought in memory of a loved one and in seeing others wearing them, we hope it’ll create support, kindness and understanding between those people.
