This Valentine's Day: Shop for a Cure is teaming up with a few extra special online shops to give you another opportunity to Love Harder this Valentine's Day. These stores are donating a portion of sales from their gorgeous handmade jewelry February 1-14.

Spread the word, support the cause, and show the world how to Love Harder.


Who: Tabitha of Wearable Joy
What: 20% on any piece labeled "Love Harder" (+ free shipping!)

Hi there! I'm Tabitha of Probably Tabitha. I'm a newlywed, a book nerd, a bit of a grammar freak, and a jewelry designer.

I couldn't be more excited to be a part of the awesomeness that is the Love Harder Project. When I heard that they were looking for Etsy sellers to support Brandy and her H.A.D. by donating a portion of the proceeds on some Valentine's Day products to the MMRF, I pretty much threw myself at the opportunity.

I have created some pieces of jewelry -- all red or pink, because hi! It's the season of love! -- specifically for this very project. I hope you find something you like, but if you have a different design or idea in mind, please let me know!


Who:  Chrissy of Yippie Designs
What: 10% on all items (+ 20% on crystal Swarovski bracelet in red!)

I started making jewelry maybe 12 years ago. My sister has been telling me from the beginning that I need to turn it into a business. I put that off for a long time until I was fund raising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (they also do Multiple Myeloma research!). The response was so great I thought I might actually have a viable business. I have pieces up on Etsy but I especially love to create new pieces (I participate in Alchemy on Etsy).


Who: Kari of Charm Boutique
What: 10% from online shop + St. Louis store (entire month of Feb!)

Opened in October 2007, Charm Boutique is the creation of retail entrepreneur Kari Kraichely. Charm was founded for the woman who prefers chic, fashion-forward jewelry made by small artists and designers. Charm fills the store with timeless jewelry that is from only hand-picked designers from around the country. In 2008, Charm moved locations to double the space because of the long list of designers who wanted to be a part of the store. In 2009, Charm was named “Best Jewelry Store” by the Riverfront Times, a weekly publication in St. Louis.

Charm is located in the up and coming downtown of St. Louis, Missouri. The energy and enthusiasm of other small boutiques makes downtown the perfect place for Charm Boutique.

Charm is excited to offer great pieces of jewelry online as well as in our flagship store.
