Many years ago while on the road with her husband, jazz legend Ramsey Lewis (and Artistic Director for Jazz at Ravinia), Mrs. Lewis would occupy her time by hand painting bangle bracelets in her hotel room while her husband was performing. Eventually she had accumulated around 50 designs with her signature dot patterns that led to the founding of Jan Lewis Designs.
That dedication has paid off as the 2013 Spring line of distinctive bangles have been selected for inclusion in the prestigious, “Everybody Wins at the Oscars®” Nominee Bag. The uniquely eye-catching, hand-crafted, Fair Trade bangles will be hand-delivered the morning after the Oscars® telecast to the nominees in the best actor, best supporting actor, best actress, best supporting actress and best director categories as well as to host Seth MacFarlane.
“We are ecstatic to have our bangles associated with the world’s highest profile entertainment event of the year is a terrific endorsement as well as an honor; one that we proudly share equally with our customers and retailers."
The legendary gift bag complete with Jan Lewis Designs' Bangles will surely soften the blow of not going home with an Oscar. Again this year, everybody will win at the Oscars®!
The 85th Academy Awards ceremony, hosted by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, will be held February 24, 2013 in Hollywood, California.
