Jewelry Designer Tenny Hovsepians to Donate Portion of Sales to the Armory

Love conquers all is the inspiration behind all the designs of Avanessi jewelry. Each month, Avanessi donates a percentage of their sales from the Love Collection to a designated charity. During the month of July 2012, Avanessi will be donating a percentage of sales from the Love Collection to The Armory Center for the Arts, a nonprofit, community-based organization that encourages the creative exchange of ideas through art exhibition and education for students of all ages and backgrounds..

Throughout the month of July 2012, Avanessi designer Tenny Hovsepians is donating a ten percent of the sales from the Love Collection to the Armory Center for the Arts. The Love Collection includes rings, bracelets, and diamond pendants that are available in 14K yellow, white, or rose gold. Each piece of jewelry has the word ‘love’ included in it.

The Armory Center for the Arts, in Pasadena, California, builds on the power of art to transform lives and communities through presenting, creating, teaching, and discussing contemporary visual art. The organization’s department of exhibitions mounts over 25 visual arts exhibitions each year at its main facility and in locations throughout the City of Pasadena. In addition, the Armory offers studio art classes and a variety of educational outreach programs to more than fifty schools and community sites. The Armory believes that an understanding and appreciation of the arts is essential for a well-rounded human experience and a healthy civic community.

“I love how The Armory Center brings the community and the Arts together. I believe that Art heals and they have created a space where they welcome people of all ages together to try something new,” said Hovsepians.

Every month, Avanessi will donate ten percent of the sales from the Love Collection to a different charity. In past months, Avanessi has donated to Shriner’s Hospital for Children in Los Angeles, Mama’s Kitchen, and The Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“Our effort to expand the message of LOVE has surpassed jewelry and we now encourage you to apply this precious sentiment to life,” said Hovsepians.

Pieces from the Love Collection are available to purchase on Avanessi’s website. For more information about the Love Collection and participating charities, go to avanessi.com.
