Michael and Ian Stettner-Palacios of local lifestyle blog I Love That For You have partnered with Hermosa Jewelry to create their very own men’s jewelry line, locally designed and handcrafted in Charleston.
The collection, featuring mask chains, is inspired by the Stettner-Palacios’ goal to overcome challenges brought about by the 2020 pandemic. Their lifestyle and travel blog, established in 2018 and two-time nominee of Best Blog in City Paper’s Best of Charleston’s Awards, expresses the couple’s passion for local business.
During their search for a men’s mask chain, Michael and Ian discovered Hermosa Jewelry’s women’s mask chain collection. “We have both forgotten our mask in the car too many times to count, but when searching for a men’s mask chain, we were left empty-handed every time,” said Michael Stettner-Palacios.
After receiving an email from the couple inquiring about a mask chain for men, Haley Holzworth, the owner of Hermosa Jewelry, decided the guys were on to something. “I knew I should join forces on a collection that men would want to wear, focusing on designing it with versatility in mind,” said Holzworth.
The versatility of the five unique mask chains allow them to hold glasses or sunglasses or to be worn as a chain necklace or wrap bracelet. Michael and Ian represented their Texas roots within their collection, with chains named after cities like Austin, Dallas, El Paso and Houston.
Hermosa Jewelry offers the I Love That For You men’s line online and at their Mount Pleasant store location.
