Think Pink with Marco Polo

As you are no doubt aware, this month is breast cancer awareness month.

Marco Polo Designs has created the Strawberry Cream line of necklaces, bracelets and earrings featuring pink swirls of glass entwined with creamy white with precious gold foil and sparkly copper dust.

The 'heart' that started it all

It all started with the Strawberry Cream Heart Pendant, Marco Polo's most popular Couture Heart. Then, after an employee was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, Marco Polo designers went to work, patterning the rest of the pieces in her honor, launching the line the following year. The latest in the line to roll out for 2011 is the Strawberry Cream Cable Necklace, a delicate yet sturdy rendition, featuring  three, hand-crafted Murano glass beads on a multi-strand, sterling silver cable.   

All year around, Marco Polo Designs donates a portion of the proceeds from each sale of Strawberry Cream jewelry to breast cancer research sponsored by the Komen Foundation. The Strawberry Cream collection is not only stunning, it's a testament to the beauty of breast cancer survival, an employee of Marco Polo who is cancer-free and going strong!

And that is fantastic news!
