States of Love…jewelry with a purpose

States of Love is a new jewelry collection with a great purpose. Three friends joined together to help those in need.

After the devastation of the April 2011 tornadoes in Alabama, Jen Boaz & Maxine Orange Bern created the Alabama Forever necklace, with all proceeds going towards the Alabama Forever Foundation, a non-profit charity created by their friend Alex Sokol to help rebuild Alabama.

With the overwhelming success of the Alabama Forever necklace, these three have joined forces and created a complete collection. A portion of the proceeds of each necklace will contribute to a different charity that is related to its design.

Maxine Orange Bern is an artist in Destin, Florida.

Jen Boaz is a jewelry designer in Atlanta, Georgia.

Alex Sokol is the founder of the Alabama Forever foundation in Birmingham, Alabama.
