BaubleBar Taps Local to Design Jewelry

"Jewelry has power to brighten your day."
 
So says Austinite Megan Runser, the first-ever customer to be featured in accessory giant BaubleBar's Guest Bartender program - typically mega-watt celebs like Emma Roberts have the job. Megan, a long-time fan of BaubleBar (and the community relations manager for lululemon's Southwest U.S. territory) was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin's Lymphoma this spring, and she's inspired us ever since with her determination to fight the battle with grace and courage. BaubleBar's co-founders were also blown away - when introduced to Megan, they immediately asked her to create a collection inspired by her personal health mantra to get back to being "as good as gold."
 
Shop the looks that went live this morning - 100% of proceeds go to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society - go behind-the-scenes of her photo shoot (pictured) and hear what piece Megan says gives her courage to tackle the day. From lion bangles and ornate stone earrings to Gaspy-chic necklaces, you'll fall head over clavicle for her first foray into design. 
 
Keep shining, Megan. 
 
 

After you shop, use Megan's hashtag #AsGoodAsGold on Twitter - for every hashtag used, BaubleBar will donate an additional $1 to the cause.
