The month of December is all about giving back—and that’s exactly what local jewelry designer Alexis Kletjian is doing. Proceeds from her new mini shield necklaces—an award-winning original design— benefit YoungMoms, a nonprofit serving and equipping local mothers with the skills, connections and resources necessary to thrive. Some 43 necklaces will be donated to moms in the program, and Kletjian will also raffle off stockings in her gallery.
