Buffalo, New York, March 8, 2012 – Aimee’s Jewelry Treasures has just gotten a major makeover, beginning with its name. In 2010, the business opened as Aimee’s Jewelry & Things, but recently, owner Aimee Waterman changed the name to reflect the more professional image of the company.
The website itself has also changed dramatically. The logo now features the Aimee’s Jewelry Treasures signature image, a beautifully designed butterfly. The tagline attached to the image goes well with the company mission. It reads, “Jewelry to treasure a lifetime.”
However, the changes do not stop at window dressing. Aimee has chosen to release a new limited edition sterling silver artisan ring on the first day of each month. These are unique pieces of handmade jewelry, each one of them signed, numbered and created along with a certificate of authenticity. The featured ring for March has been The Sunflower, a design limited to 31 to be sold in total.
Returning customers can rely on the same high quality of handmade jewelry that Aimee Waterman and her company have always provided. Aimee’s Jewelry Treasures always offers unusual and beautiful products. Currently, customers can choose from a large online catalog of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, rings, anklets, holiday jewelry and a variety of clearance items.
Earrings come in gold-filled, sterling silver and .999 fine silver. Some of the gold-filled options are Amberessence, Let It Resinate, Retro Design, Spiraling Down, and Golden Tear Drop Earrings. Some of the most beautiful earrings are silver and sterling silver, including Angel Watch Over Me, Be My Valentine, Ruby Red Crystal Chandelier, and Kanji Bamboo Earrings.
Materials for the necklaces include small Swarovski rounds, a hammered copper clay dragonfly, or a gathering of large porcelain beads. Several chain mail chokers are also available. Some of the bracelets are made of chain mail as well, or copper, Swarovski rounds, leather or various beads. The Chain Maille Slave Bracelet has been particularly popular in recent days.
Current rings are the Andes Jasper, the Electric Blues, the Green Cats Eye and the Wrapped Sterling Flower Rings. One anklet is made of beautiful blue glass beads and another is made of fine silver hearts. There are always new choices at Aimee’s Jewelry Treasures because Aimee is always creating new designs.
Aimee’s Jewelry Treasures continues to produce sterling silver butterfly bracelets to support the charitable cause of finding a cure for Fibromyalgia. These specially made bracelets are titled the “Hope for Christine” bracelets, and can be found on the Charitable Givings page of the main website. Out of each bracelet sold, $5 is donated to the National Fibromyalgia & Chronic Pain Association. This association will soon be adding the “Hope for Christine” bracelets to their online storefront as well.

Update Your Hair While You Safeguard Your Health at My Trendy Place with Upcoming On-Site Breast Cancer Screenings
Are you a woman 35 or older? Have you ever had a mammogram? Houston Lace Front Wig boutique/MyTrendy Place is providing the setting for a mammogram screening event sponsored by the top Houston breast cancer group The Rose.
Immediate Press Release:
Houston, Texas, September 9, 2011 – My Trendy Place boutique and The Rose breast cancer organization will be teaming up to provide breast cancer screenings on Tuesday, September 20. Screenings will take place at My Trendy Place’s Houston location, thanks to the mobile mammography vans sponsored by The Rose.
Hair loss can be traumatic for women experiencing health problems such as alopecia, lupus and cancer. Cancer treatments in particular are very hard on the hair. Chemotherapy targets all fast growing cells when attacking cancer cells. Since hair grows so fast, its follicles ultimately become a target and chemotherapy does its job, the hair follicles die out and hair loss is the result. This can be devastating to anyone.
My Trendy Place offers many solutions for women who suffer from hair loss. Hair extensions, hair weaving and full lace wigs help women feel like themselves again. As the hair grows back in, natural hair care services such as relaxers, color, cutting and styling can improve its appearance. All women, in fact, can use these services to makeover and refresh their style.
Owner of My Trendy Place, Lisa Amosu, explains how she got started helping women. “I have been around so many women that have experienced hair loss due to traction alopecia or other forms of hair loss. I saw there were few options in Houston. I decided to take a chance and started My Trendy Place. I love what I’m able to do for the self-esteem of others.”
At My Trendy Place, a professional meets with each person for a consultation before suggesting a beauty plan. Staff members take the time to determine whether a full Houston Lace Front Wig, hair extensions or some other hair procedure would be best.
My Trendy Place deals in the highest quality Indian Remy and Human Hair Wigs. Staff members demonstrate the best way clients can apply the wigs to protect the hairline and to promote healthy hair growth.
The Rose’s mobile mammography screening will be held from 9am through 3pm on September 20 for all eligible women. Refreshments and Lite Bites will be served. The breast cancer screenings promise to help many women in the Houston area. With a stop inside the My Trendy Place boutique, women can make what some may consider a less then pleasant outing, a day of fun and fashion while attending to their health and wellbeing.
