Before I dive into this deliciously fabulous, ORGANIC cotton jewelry line called Razimus, I would just like to say that I have had the chance to work with amazing, talented people over the last 15 years of my life. Each one has enriched my life in an invaluable way. Among those people is Virginia Fretto, the designer and mastermind behind Razimus Jewelry. I have been watching her grow her business through the years and I am so happy that I now have the opportunity to not only wear her product, but to tell all of you fine folks about it!
The word "Razimus" was created by Virginia's PoPop and has very special meaning to her and all of the grandkids in her family. It was his way of motivating them to do things - whether it was getting a piece of candy to take a nap or getting good grades in school so their college books were paid for! The bottom line is that they earned their "Razimus" because their PoPop believed in them! Treating yourself to one of the pieces from this collection is a reward for all the good you do everyday. You deserve it!
The Razimus style can be summed up in two words: comfortable and fashionable. How heavenly is that combo? Virginia always wants her collection to be functional - from work to play / day to night. Her degree in fashion design, coupled with a career in fine jewelry makes her a true expert!
The fiber of Razimus is built, quite literally, on using handmade and eco-friendly materials. All of the items featured in this post and the rest of the Spring/Summer collection that can be found on Etsy (here) are 100% organic or vintage/up-cycled fabrics. As a new mom and entrepreneur, Virginia sources and collaborates with many "mama-owned" small businesses that are built on the same core values.
How can you not love everything about this gal and her company??
Now it's time for the fun stuff - THE RAZIMUS GIVEAWAY! The item of choice is the "VIVE" Neck to Wrist piece that I am wearing above! I am showing it layered w/ some simple pendants here on the left and then stacked, layered, and crisscrossed with all of my other bangles on the right. I adore the way that I am able to make it my own! Virginia's whole mission is to enhance and capture each of our personalities! Then it shines through in our fabric and accent choices! The attention to detail is uber cool - the clasp is MAGNETIC!! The fabric is washable!! The pattern is simple, but funky!! And the metal/bead accents add a pop of color in all of the right places!! I love the VIVE for summer styled as seen or with a sweet sundress.
Do the words stylish and functional keep coming to mind? BINGO!
