There is one line that is near and dear to Hughes — Always Choose Joy. “This line was inspired while caring for my mother who had dementia,” Hughes said. “It was a very trying and difficult time for me. Over the years of caring for her I realized all the joy she was teaching me. I decided to design a beautiful collection of jewelry and accessories to spread my message,” she detailed.

Part of the proceeds from the Always Choose Joy line fund its PINKBOX project. “(This) line funds our PINKBOX project, which sends crafts to children’s hospitals and nursing homes. My mothers name was Pinky so I found PINKBOX to be a perfect name,” she explained.

“We think that all of the items in our Always Choose Joy line complement each other and give the customer a wide and special selection to choose from when displayed together as a collection,” Hughes said. “There are various price ranges and they will be sure to find something for everyone.”
