Lilybellesjewels' Shop Announcement


Welcome to our shop! Lily Belle and I would like to mention that 10% of all sales will be donated to Mt. Olive TNR Project, a tiny Flanders NJ based group that is doing amazing work on a very small budget, and a small circle of very dedicated volunteers who are making a huge difference in the lives of feral colonies in their area. For those of you who are not familiar with TNR (Trap-Neuter-Return), it is a humane, effective way of managing feral populations within a community. For more information, or to make a donation directly, please visit them at http://www.mtolivetnr.org.

The initial reason for starting Lily Belles Jewels was to support our own group of kitties. We have a feral colony of between 38 and 46 kitties that we maintain. We also have 17 indoor kitties who we've rescued, but were never able to be placed in forever homes because of one reason or another.

One of our kitties, (Baby), had to have her eye removed at a very early age. Another, (Molly), was born with a condition known as Cerebellar Hypoplasia..........Simply put, cerebellar hypoplasia is a neurological disorder that affects the cerebellum, the part of the brain that controls coordination and balance. Molly has a particularly severe case, and cannot walk at all.

As you can see, it is somewhat expensive, and time consuming, but we have received so much love from these amazing babies that we wouldn't have it any other way. For obvious reasons, TNR is something we strongly believe in, and support whenever we can. So please keep in mind that 10% of the proceeds of your purchase will help to enrich the lives of the wonderful animals being helped by Mt. Olive TNR, and the remainder will benefit our "kids", who would thank you if they could....So on their behalf....Thank You for visiting our shop!

Lily Belle has decided that since she has never been very good at typing, or any other menial task I should be the one in charge of any tiresome labor. She clearly feels that she is the creative talent in the team, and therefore I should not bother her with the day to day mundane tasks. In case I forgot to mention; Lily Belle is a cat, but not just any cat; she is truly a foo foo girl, and considers herself to have exquisite tastes in all things pretty. She does oversee all the pieces, and only when she has judged it to be "the cats meow" are we allowed to place it on the site.

I would also like to mention that I use sterling silver or gold filled, antique brass, or copper for all metal parts of my pieces. I do not use silver plate or gold plate unless it is something that is used on occasion, such as holiday or fun pieces. That would be the only way to make these pieces at a price that would make them "fun jewelry". Any pieces that are made using silver plate or gold plate will always say so in the description.

Gift boxes are available at no extra charge. Should you need one, please just mention it in the notes to seller at checkout.
