Nozomi joins the Navy!

"We drove two hours to get here because we couldn't wait to go shopping at the Nozomi Project!"

"I came last year and purchased two beautiful necklaces - one for me and one for my sister.  The one for my sister somehow never made it to her.  Oops!"

White Day - Day for Reciprocating

Have you ever heard of White Day?  It's a holiday celebrated in Japan and it's all about reciprocating the gifts you received on Valentine's Day.  Isn't that fun?

Unlike the western notion of February 14, in Japan primarily women give chocolate gifts to men.  So March 14 is the day for returning the favor.  On White day, men buy a gift for the women who gave them chocolate.  Originally this was some kind of marshmallow treat, or white chocolate (hence the name "White Day"), but now anything goes.

Nozomi Project is honoring this day of giving by marking down four of our favorite lines of jewelry!  So Guys, here is your chance to follow the Japanese custom of White Day and enjoy purchasing beautiful gifts for the women in your life!  Women, you can take advantage of White Day as well by using this campaign as a chance to find great gifts for others and yourself.  White Day gives one more great reason to love Beauty from Brokenness.

Our friend and popular author and vlogger, Grace Buchele Mineta, has featured Nozomi Project in a recent vlog and explained the Japanese giving culture around White Day.  Check it out here.

We have LOVED featuring our own staff this past week as our favorite models on Facebook!  We teamed together with our sister organization, Megumi Project.  Each of the women wore a Megumi scarf with a Nozomi accessory.  Here are a few that we have featured so far.  Aren't they beautiful?

Our Nozomi Project manager looks beautiful every day, but wearing this chic silky scarf and peach earrings makes her shine.  Find YOUR best color, and earrings to match. (Customers who order from one of our online stores will receive a free shipping coupon to order from our partner store).

 Emi - You don’t need to live in Japan to wear these stylish ribbon scarves.  Style it around your waist, wear it around your neck, or tied in your hair as a long headband, you will love the versatility and the style of these one-of-a-kind repurposed scarves.  Emi completes her beautiful outfit with a matching luminous necklace from our Noa collection.
