The History of My Jewels of Hope....
In 2005, at the age of 7, Greer Gates started making and selling bracelets to help raise money to cure cancer to support a close family friend named Nancy. With the help of her family and friends, her project has grown Greer's original bracelet line has evolved into a full line of Jewely, keychains, retractible badge holders and christmas ornaments, and each has her signature Sea Turtle charm or stamp. Nancy's Relay for Life team was the "Turtle Herd". An avid scuba diver and water lover, Nancy admired the many changes and adaptions that Sea Turtles have had to overcome to survive. The average Sea Turtle lives a very long life, and is seen as good luck in many cultures.
