2015 was an emotional year for so many, a year when it became clear to all of us at Team LOLA that there is no better time to spread the love and radiate joy and support than now. At this moment.
It is impossible to convey our gratitude to all of our friends, family and business partners. LOLA is less than a year old and the pendants not only grace the bodies of those who wear them but touch their hearts. Giving a LOLA pendant carries with it deep personal energy and love, and when the gift benefits not only the recipient and giver but brings resources to non-profits whose teams work to make a difference every day…well, may that circle be unbroken for many years and decades to come.
“Unbreakable” is etched into the back of our Celtic Knot – and here at LOLA our team is also unbreakable, brought together by a shared vision, a collective passion, and just the kindest, funniest, most talented people you’ll find around our conference tables – and kitchen tables.
This month, we’re kicking off our LOLA LOVE campaign – because we love everything LOLA! Share your favorite LOLA stories with us – and we’ll send you a thank you gift when we post your story to this blog and our social media sites.
I’m starting off with http://www.lolahats.com/ – what an incredible story and what amazing hats! Next time I am in NYC (soon!) I plan to stop by the studio in Brooklyn, in the Bushwick neighborhood. Obsessed! You can follow Lola Hats on Instagram, Twitter and you can find one of a kind, handmade pieces in specialty stores around the world.
Artisans of the world – unite! Love and fashion are what make the real impression – the joyful expression.
Follow us as we go on our global treasure hunt for everything LOLA, including wine…another one of my favorite pastimes…
Cheers to 2016!

- Meaningful, hand-made pendants that carry life stories with them
- Partnering with non-profit organizations to raise awareness and funds through sharing profits
April 20, 2015; Boston, MA: LOLA™ & Co. today announced they have launched their new brand, bringing beautiful, high quality, handcrafted pendants which mark important moments in people’s lives. Beginning with their popular pendants and chains, the company is expanding to include bracelets, cufflinks, rings and other jewelry, while also offering commissioned pieces for individuals, families and organizations.
“Each LOLA™ pendant is one-of-a-kind – just like the person who wears it,” said founder and CEO, Lil Guerrera.
With meaningful symbols including angels, compasses, stars, sand dollars, and more, many of the pendants also include inspirational words engraved into the back, further imbuing every individual piece with meaning.
LOLA™ pendants are often given as gifts, to bring courage, strength, hope, comfort and joy to family and friends who have overcome adversity or continue to be challenged.
Pendants are also given simply to express friendship, gratitude and love, and are cherished by those who wear them as a means to carry with them a feeling of great honor.
“LOLA™ pendants are collected, and combined, as a way to layer not only the beautiful pendants themselves, but as a way to share original stories and experiences,” Ms. Guerrera said. “Whether it’s an Angel pendant given to a mother bravely fighting cancer, a Compass pendant given to a student starting college, a St. Christopher pendant given to a constant traveler, or simply a Sand Dollar pendant that carries the memories of a beach vacation…these are very special pieces.”
Ms. Guerrera is building on the success over the last six years, and partnering with top retailers including DeScenza Diamonds in the Boston market, to expand the availability of LOLA™ pendants while also expanding the line to include new products.
The company’s tagline is: Love one, love all.™
One of the first non-profits to participate in LOLA™’s program (sharing profits with the non-profit, and overall sharing 5% of profits to selected organizations) is www.margaretokari.org. Based in Andover, MA, northwest of Boston, Margaret Okari’s mission is “to serve the students of the Margaret Okari Children’s Foundation by providing them with an education, a home, love, and hope for a future.”
“We have hundreds of devoted volunteers and donors who deeply love what Margaret Okari built for the children of workers in her soapstone carving studio whose parents were taken too soon. After Margaret’s death, her sister Kwamboka Okari returned to Kisii, Kenya to lead and grow place where the children have access to a world class STEM curriculum, and are ranked amount the highest scoring students in the country. We will sell and wear our LOLA™ pendants with love honor,” said Peg Campbell, Executive Director, Margaret Okari Foundation.
LOLA™ is headquartered in the Boston, MA area, sold globally, and produced in a number of countries including Thailand where this process of glass enameling on metal goes back thousands of years.
