This is where we live rain or shine. When this jewelry project began as a website out of a garage (more of a gazebo) off Vine drive, one of us decided to buy a house in town. That made it easy to decide what town we would open Darvier Jewelry Design Studio. We are excited to add and retire charity activities to our list as they are enjoyed. Past charitable events have been wonderful and satisfying ranging from Scouts to student trips abroad. Until we align with further projects (Teachers!) here are three of our favorite this year. Please reach out to us if you have a collaboration in mind!
For a special Valentine's day idea we offer various engraved postage stamp pendants based on vintage love letters (and presumably some bills) from the mid to late 1800's. Aside from special pricing for the detailed piece already made, you will receive the actual letter of inspiration and it's contents that match the pendant engraving similar to what's shown here. Each letter is unique and irreplaceable. Proceeds from this project go to the United Service Organizations for the month of February.
Supporting the USO helps 4.9 million service members and their families
Your purchase will pay for a gift that provides phone cards and technology needed to reach out and connect a call home. You can also donate to the USO here.
For five years we have offered a unique silver Halloween themed pendant as a stop on the Old Town Zombie Crawl here in Ft. Collins. Shamelessly taken from the Turning Point website:

We have been making this trio of Princess Bride themed pendants ever since a client of ours rented the local drive in for their wedding featuring this film. The project came naturally. A few years later an individual hosted a silent action benefiting the Foothills Gateway Foundation.
We are always interested in offering a gift certificate for a good cause. Visit our showroom to see if we are a good fit to support your cause and don't forget to bring a copy of your organizations 501c3 for eligibility.
