My son suffered a traumatic eye injury when he was 23 years old. There is no known procedure for restoring his sight, but we dream that one day there will be. With the loss of his vision came a vision to restore it. We call it The Eye Candy Project.
It started with trunk shows featuring our street-chic and boho-chic jewelry collection — a carefully curated blend of unique, bold, on-trend pieces handmade and handpicked by Jamie. Since 2013, we have proudly supported research for traumatic eye injury. Our vision has grown over the years, and we are now honored to support other causes near and dear to our hearts.
We love bringing style to you, and bringing hope to our community. You can join us in three fabulous ways: Eye Candy Trunk, Eye Candy Style, and Eye Candy Revival.
Before establishing The Eye Candy Project, Jamie enjoyed a successful career in retail management in New York City’s storied Garment District. Designing, buying, and wearing jewelry have always served as driving creative forces for the Long Island native, both personally and professionally.
After her son suffered a traumatic eye injury at age 23, Jamie harnessed her passion for jewelry to support research for his condition—and has been doing so since 2013. She founded The Eye Candy Project, a boutique jewelry company specializing in handmade and handpicked street-chic and boho-chic jewelry via hosted trunk shows, personal styling, and up-cycling treasured pieces.
Losing sight creates a vision, and she dreams that one day her son’s sight will be restored. Previously, Jamie volunteered as Chairwoman for the ORT America Fashion Show and as President of Parents and Professionals for Exceptional Children.
