Wharton Business School Furthers the Social Impact of Colombian Girl Jewelry

Four students from Wharton Business School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania partnered with Colombian Girl Jewelry in the spring of 2015 as part of "The Social Impact Consulting Group" (SIC) to further the mission of socially minded organizations.  From left to right, Emily Zhang, Teddy Guenin, Annie Wasserman, and Anderson Tien (project leader).

Colombian Girl Jewelry had the opportunity to partner with four of the brightest minds from The Wharton School earlier this year, in a collaborative effort to broaden Colombian Girl's social impact by revealing "jewelry made from fruit" to socially aware, eco-minded markets in the United States. 

The program, known as "The Social Impact Consulting Group" (SIC), is a non-profit group at the Wharton School, fully operated by undergraduate students who wieldcutting edge business knowledge to further the social mission of local organizations and businesses.  The students who choose to participate do so on a voluntary 100% pro-bono basis, representing the finest minds (and hearts) today's premiere business school has to offer!

The mission of SIC is two-fold:

1) To provide high-quality, high-impact, tangible, and sustainable deliverables to clients.

2) To offer undergraduate students at the University of Pennsylvania with real-world experiences in the field of non-profit consulting.

The  team who partnered with Colombian Girl Jewelry was made up of four uniquely experienced students representing a diverse spectrum of interdisciplinary academic majors, ranging from Finance and Management to International Studies and Engineering.  The four students were all seasoned professionals in the SIC program, having partnered with other socially minded organizations in the past, and all were especially drawn to Colombian Girl Jewelry for their unique jewelry product, handmade from fruit and seeds, and the social mission guiding the company's founders.

The SIC team shown above, pictured from left to right, was made up of:

Emily Zhang, a junior in the Jerome Fisher Program in Management and Technology (M&T), a dual degree program between The Wharton School and the School of Engineering and Applied Science.

Teddy Guenin, a senior, also in the M&T program.

Annie Wasserman, a sophomore in the Huntsman Program in International Studies and Business, a dual degree program between The Wharton School and the School of Arts and Sciences.

Anderson Tien, project leader, a junior in the Life Science and Management (LSM) Program, a dual degree program between The Wharton School and the School of Arts and Sciences.

Over the course of a semester, the SIC team developed a two-pronged approach to refine Colombian Girl Jewelry's long-term e-commerce strategy, addressing both the needs and wants of the Colombian Girl Jewelry consumer while reaching new markets.  The culmination of the semester's work came in the form of a formal presentation delivered to company founders, providing key deliverables with practical applications that will enable Colombian Girl to become a leading e-commerce social enterprise in the forseeable future.

Colombian Girl Jewelry is proud and humbled to receive the expert attention of the SIC group, delivered in a professional and earnest manner, and extend sincerest gratitude to The Wharton School and their four SIC partners for their profound insights.

How To Make A Beautiful Orange Peel Flower - May 8, 2014

Carolina Locker

The 6 easy steps behind every piece of jewelry in our "Orange Peel" collection.

The 6 easy steps behind every piece of jewelry in our "Orange Peel" collection.

Today we would like to show you how our incredible Colombian women artisans transform orange peels into beautiful flowers, at the heart of our entire collection of orange peel jewelry (steps pictured above).  Step 1, find a ready supply of freshly squeezed oranges.  Step 2, carefully scoop out the pulp.  Step 3, double check to make sure you scooped out the pulp (otherwise it won't dry).  Step 4, allow to dry under direct sunlight in a low humidity environment, but not too long, they might burn!  Step 5, beginning at the top, cut a thin contiguous strip of peel leaving the circular center intact (a little larger then a silver dollar).  Step 6, roll the strip of peel tightly and neatly from outside inward, pin with a large needle and allow to dry for a few days.  CONGRATULATIONS, you have just created a beautiful orange peel flower and amazing item of jewelry, in both a sustainable and eco-minded way!  Very similar steps are employed in all our lines of organic jewelry, allowing our Colombian women artisans to produce individual works of art every single time they create a new item!  Check out many more beautiful orange peel flowers and our entire collection of orange peel jewelry at http://www.colombiangirljewelry.com/orange-peel/.

We spent all of last week sharing our collection of organic jewelry with all of Florida, stopping everywhere from Clearwater Beach to Orlando, and finishing up at the "Harbour Island Art Walk" in Tampa!  The Florida sun proved to be the perfect compliment to the natural, vibrant dyes in our jewelry, while the exotic appeal of our collection served as the perfect beach going accessory!  Best part, we made some friends along the way including the editor of one of the largest regional pet-centered magazines known as "The New Barker" along with her smiling companion "Ruby."  They have some very intriguing, pet insightful material at http://www.thenewbarker.com/.  You can visit the "Harbour Island Art Walk" the last Sunday of every month, learn more at http://www.harbourislandartwalk.com/#/home.
