brand new: our hope{full} collection

February 26th | jewelry, videos

Our hope{full} collection is finally here and I couldn’t be more excited to tell you about it!

Each piece from our hope{full} collection is fair trade, organic and sustainable, giving work to Ecuadorian women and building families and communities. Necklaces, bracelets and earrings are made from tagua seeds, which are harvested, carved and dyed vibrant, beautiful shades.  We are also offering hand-made scarves that can be worn in your hair, around your waist, around your neck and any other creative way! Additionally, with the sale of each piece from the hope{full} collection, Lisa Leonard Designs will donate a portion of the proceeds back to Jungle Kids. For each piece sold we’re buying lunch for a child in need. That is awesome.

We put together a beautiful video that will give you an inside look at one of our photo shoots. I’m also sharing my heart behind the line. Check it out here:

The pieces are so FUN and I love the bright colors.

Want to find out more? You can visit Jungle Kid’s website here. You can watch a video about Jungle Kids here. You can see my interview and a behind the scenes look at one of our photo shoots here. And if you have more questions, feel free to contact our customer service team!

We’re SO excited about this line. We can’t wait to hear your thoughts. Tell us which piece is your favorite. Leave a comment and tell us that you’re ready to be part of making a difference!

    These pieces are beautiful! Our 15 year old daughter just returned from a trip to Ecuador with Compassion. Our two Compassion kids live there, so we spend a lot of time thinking and praying for the people of that country.

    • Lisa Leonard says:

      That’s awesome! I’d love to hear more about what she did there with Compassion!

      • April says:

        She had a great time and absolutely fell in love with Ecuador! She was able to hang out with our Compassion kids for one day, and the rest of the time she was helping to build classrooms onto a school. Great experience!

    Those yellow gold earrings are so happy!

  7. SO BEAUTIFUL. My heart has always loved anything blue, green or turquoise! And I am SO loving what this means. I am getting the ocean view bracelet today and I can’t wait to tell my kids when it comes in what it means! I think this is SO awesome that you are a part of this.

  14. cristy says:

    Those turquoise stud earrings are great!!!!

  15. Kelly J. R. says:

    I think this new line fits great with your brand. Just think of all the people that could be helped if more companies sold fair trade goods.

    I really like the mustard scarf and how the model is wearing it around her waist. I never thought of wearing a scarf like that and I think it’s a great idea!

  16. Sheila says:

    I love it!! So beautiful, and what a fun video! It’s so important and meaningful to create these partnerships around the world and really understand what impact our purchases have on others. The name of the line is perfect, that’s what you’re doing- bringing hope! Lovely! Xoxo

  17. kelly says:

    I am excited by this!! Can I tell you it made me tear up a bit?? Thanks for making it easy for us to fill up a belly or two in need. Your work is beautiful.

  18. This is so exciting Lisa! I have a vibrant red seed bracelet from our missions trips to El Salvador and Honduras last summer. My sister in law didn’t believe me when I told her it was made from seeds. Its gorgeous and extremely comfortable to wear! I cant wait to check out your pieces.
    Best wishes on this new venture!

  19. Rachael B says:

    This is seriously amazing! Makes me love Lisa Leonard Designs even more!! My favorite pieces is the “ocean side view bracelet” and I just ordered it- can’t wait to wear it. Loving all the bright colours and that this line is helping others. Beautiful Lisa!!

  20. Lisa says:

    Beautiful pieces, and such a good cause! (on a side note, I SO love the house you had the photo shoot at!)

  21. Christie Felker says:

    The Lisa Leonard Design pieces I have are SO special to me! I am excited about the new Hope(full) line and all it stands for. Love the turquoise earrings and gold necklace. My MOPS group features a “favorite things” meeting in March (think Oprah, but smaller and for mamas)…I plan to buy some Hope(full) pieces to donate.

  22. Jillian says:

    Hello Lisa! First of all, I just found your website/ blog through Edie over at Life in Grace and what a blessing! i love this new line and am super excited to support it and the women/ children that it will bless. turquoise stud earrings and golden seed necklace are calling my name. Is is hard to narrow down my favs as each piece is amazing!

  23. Kelli says:

    I love everything about this – from the colors to the prices to the social and economic impact for those women. I can’t wait to link this up to my facebook page…and hopefully to spend all my birthday money on scarves, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings – oh, my!

    I am so glad there are people like you who do good in the world with their businesses.

  24. Sarah says:

  27. Wow! What stunning colors. How fun! I can’t wait to see where you go with this. I have quite a few of your pieces.

  28. Lisa, the bright colors are my favorite part of the collection! The amazing mission of this collection makes it even more beautiful and special!

    Thank you for always striving to bless people in what you do…

    How do I want to be involved? Anything! Whatever you need!

    • Lisa Leonard says:

      Aw, you are so sweet! Thank you! You can definitely be involved by spreading the word… let’s give as much as we can!

  29. Erin says:

    Love all of the bright, bold pieces and LOVE the choice to create a line that creates jobs to empower a group of women to provide for their families. What a gift! I also want to know what the name of the song is that is in the video.

  30. Heidi Oran says:

    Love this Lisa! Will share on my blog. If you’re up for an interview let me know 😉

  31. Priscila says:

    These are beautiful Lisa. I love the bright color s, and I love even more the heart behind it. I’m preparing a little blog post about this as we speak!

  32. Veronica says:

    I love everything about this new line and I’m looking forward to buying several new pieces. You should totally do a headscarf tutorial to showcase scarf-wearing options.

  33. Lisa my friend, you are always doing so many good and beautiful things in this world! I am so excited about this touching and hope{full} line! xoxo

  34. Nadine Palmer says:

    Love the video and the new Hope(full) line! The juxtaposition of the new chunky and colorful jewelry with your silver pieces is really cool. I like to buy fair trade items, and when I can do so from a small U.S. business like yours, it makes it all the better. Thanks for caring enough to bring us these goods as well as donating the meals along with purchases – paying it forward is the only way to go!
    P.S. Thank you also for make the “chosen” necklace that celebrates adoption. I don’t usually see items like that. My husband and I had foster children and ended up adopting three girls who make my life a joy (and sometimes a bit crazy!) each and every day.

  35. Maria-Cristina says:

    So proud to see Ecuadorian products in your store. I was born and raised in Ecuador, and it is trully an amazing little country filled with unimaginable gifts from nature. It is a beautiful country that will leave a mark in whoever visits it. Thank you for being so generous, for promoting the hard work of the people, and for promoting such an amazing thing like tagua. You rock!!!!
