More often than not, jewelry types have an interesting back story of how they became popularized, and Renoir—an ultra-collectible costume jewelry—is no exception.
We can all thank Brooklyn, N.Y. native Jerry Fels for creating the Renoir line. Fels’ journey to becoming a jewelry pioneer is compelling. Growing up, he was steered toward fine arts by his parents and joined the National Academy of Design in New York where he developed painting, sculpture and design skills. Fels worked as an Art Director before joining the Air Force and becoming a fighter pilot during World War II.
Fels—drawing off influence from the Arts and Crafts Movement during the late 1800 and early 1900s—created his company, Renoir of California, in Los Angeles in 1946. Renoir of California specialized in copper jewelry in geometric forms.
Copper jewelry was extremely popular during the 1950s and 60s, and Fels expanded upon his Renoir line by creating Matisse jewelry. Matisse introduced a sparkling enamel to the copper jewelry that attracted celebrities, movie stars and the who’s who of Hollywood. Fels produced his copper jewelry until 1964 when Renoir and Matisse closed business thanks to an evolving fashion industry and lower demand for copper jewelry.
Although, Fels is no longer churning out beautiful Renoir jewelry, that doesn’t mean you can’t hunt down some of his copper pieces at Goodwill.
What to look for
In the quest to find authentic Renoir copper jewelry pieces, there are a few distinguishable marks. The Matisse line has the Renoir copyright mark in cursive and the Matisse mark on the back of each piece. Early pieces marked with the signature “Hand Made, Renoir California” date 1948-51. Afterward pieces were marked “Renoir.” Prices vary, but usually fall in the $20-$70 range.Add a Comment | Comments (0)

When the models take the runway at the Glitter Gala Fashion Show on October 15, there will be three individuals largely responsible for the looks you see—the Glitter Gala Styling Interns. Between now and the Gala, we’ll be introducing you to the creative minds behind the “Take Root and Bloom” themed display on the runway.
Ariel Azcueta is a Fashion Design student at Sanford Brown College. She’s interested in pursuing a career in fair trade fashion and sustainable textile practices—perhaps one day working in a textile laboratory that aims to reduce waste from the fashion industry.
Her passion for fashion design grew out of her relationship with her little sister. Growing up Ariel describes her style as very girly, and her younger sister saw that, and wanted to “be beautiful too.” Ariel, wanting to instill in her sister that she is beautiful, started helping her develop her own style. “I went through her closet and started sorting all her clothes and putting them together into outfits.” She explained, “I didn’t know it at the time, but I was styling her wardrobe.” Ariel started noticing that her sister was happy with the selections, and feeling more comfortable in her own skin and wardrobe—and that’s what got her into fashion design.
“What I did for my sister, I want to do for other people as well,” she said. Ariel is passionate about self-expression through wardrobe and self-styling. “I realized you don’t need to follow what other people are doing to feel beautiful. You can find it in your own personal style.” She also volunteers as a stylist at Ruby Room, a non-profit organization that connects low-income high school students with formal attire for events like prom.
She’s inspired by the work of fashion designer Zac Posen—“I like his aesthetic,” she said. “It can be so simple, but little details can bring out so much.”
For the Glitter Gala Fashion Show, Ariel will be styling the second and fifth segments of the show. Her favorite part of the internship experience so far has been pulling items from the store to create her looks—but it hasn’t gone without challenges. “I live in Seattle. I’ve never lived anywhere else. I love wearing black, gray, and white—so adding color has been challenging for me. Even with the segments I have, I keep trying to go back and make it neutral—and I keep telling myself no!” Expect to see shades of green with red highlights in Ariel’s segments.
See Ariel’s work come to life on the runway on October 15 at Glitter Gala & Fashion Show 2016—get your tickets here.Add a Comment | Comments (0)

Brycen was sitting in his high school manufacturing class two years ago when a presenter entered the room and began speaking about some extracurricular program. Brycen wasn’t paying too much attention. He thought he’d heard it all before.
Suddenly, the man’s message piqued his interest. This was different.
“I raised my head and started listening to this guy and all the opportunity he talked about,” Brycen explained. “It wasn’t a college thing. It wasn’t a schooling thing. I thought, ‘This is a program meant to help people.’ I had this feeling that it would carry me into the next step in life.”
That was the first step in what’s been a transformative experience for Brycen. That day he learned about Seattle Goodwill’s Youth Aerospace Program (YAP), which focuses on aviation/manufacturing training that guides youth through their final year of high school, first year of community college and subsequent job placement in the field.
The program also helps youth develop knowledge, skills and motivation to achieve in school. They also learn to contribute positively to the greater community, be competitive in the job market and successfully enroll in and complete post-secondary education.
Brycen is a YAP 3 student. He’s enrolled in Everett Community College and well on the pathway to building a bright future for himself and his family. That’s especially important given some of the hardships Brycen’s been dealt.
He moved from California to Washington where he attended Snohomish High School as a sophomore. He left home, moving to a completely unfamiliar place, to get a new lease on life.
“My dad was a drug addict, and my birth mom was a drug addict,” Brycen said. “You can imagine there was a few complications with all of that. (Moving) wasn’t to get away from them, but rather it was to get a new start in life, because from day one it’s been like all-the-odds-against-us kind of thing.”
Goodwill’s YAP has been a blessing, Brycen said. He’s forged lasting friendships while charting a path to a career that will help him one day support a family of his own—one of his largest life goals.
“With the knowledge Goodwill has gifted me with, their support and my faith and everything, it’s like I’m unstoppable at this point,” Brycen said. “So it’s really just this amazing feeling. It’s like for the first time in my life things are actually working and that is just inspiring. The ultimate goal is to have a wife and family and really provide for them. When I was young that was stolen from me. The best way to fulfill that in my life is to recreate that myself, so I’m going to do it.”
Brycen’s YAP 3 classmate, Asia, has also grown thanks to her time in the YAP program.
Asia went to elementary school in the United States before moving to the Philippines and finishing her schooling there. She graduated at 15 years old and moved back to the U.S.
Asia—always shy and reserved growing up—has blossomed into a far more outgoing person thanks to the YAP program, and she’s also discovered the type of career she hopes to have.
“It changed me a lot,” said Asia of her first year in the program. “I was that kid who always locked up and never wanted to show my true me. I’ve changed a lot. My mom sees it. I’m outgoing more. I’m getting the soft skills I need. This program is just changing all of us from teenagers to real adults.”
Key Bank, which is prioritizing workforce development and education, has awarded Seattle Goodwill and Everett Community College a $75,000 grant to support the Seattle Goodwill Youth Aerospace Program and ECC enrollment.
“We know students who leave with a two-year degree earn, on average, twice as much as adults without a high school diploma,” said Barbara “b.g.” Nabors-Glass, Vice President of Seattle Goodwill’s Job Training and Education. “We are very grateful for the support of Key Bank for helping impact our student’s futures in such a positive way.”Add a Comment | Comments (0)

Hundreds of donors every day drop their donations off at Seattle Goodwill locations, while shoppers leave our stores with great finds.
Sometimes, though, bringing a donation to Goodwill or taking an item home isn’t so simple—especially when dealing with a large or heavy piece.
Well, Seattle Goodwill has a solution. We’ve partnered with Dolly—a pickup, delivery and hauling service. Dolly is like Uber for moving. It connects local pickup truck owners (called Helpers) to offer donors and shoppers an easy and affordable option to get an item to or from a Goodwill store.
“We think it’s terrific that Seattle Goodwill and Dolly can partner on this initiative,” said Brent Frerichs, Seattle Goodwill Director of Business Development and Strategies. “We believe that strong partnerships like this build stronger communities. The partnership with Dolly fully recognizes our changing times. Not everyone has or needs a vehicle.”
Setting up a Dolly is simple. Users log into their phone app, enter pickup or drop-off locations, add the item needing to be moved, select the number of Helpers needed to assist, set a pickup time and then receive a price quote.
Helpers, who use their own vehicles for moving items, are thoroughly vetted, Dolly Business Development Director Diane Escher said. Background and motor vehicle records are checked, and the application allows users to directly communicate with Helpers, track progress and rate their experience.
Dolly, which is headquartered in Seattle, provides service from our Lynnwood location south along the I-5 corridor to Renton, as well as Bellevue.
Dolly also has committed to donating $5 to our Job Training and Education Programs for every regular-priced pickup or drop-off at a Goodwill location.
“Goodwill is such a mainstay in the community,” Escher said. “We want to continue to give back to the community and help support the job training and development of those people in need. We as a business are also about putting people to work who are interested in helping out the community.”
To get more information on Dolly, visit its website.
Some frequently asked questions regarding Dolly’s service:
Q: What is Dolly?
A: Dolly is like Uber for loading, hauling and delivering things. Dolly drivers are called Helpers. They are local pickup truck owners who are able and eager to help. They bring a pickup truck and muscle to lift, load and carry on behalf of the customer.
Q: How much does Dolly cost?
A: Pricing starts at $35 and is based off the number and type of items being delivered, how many people are required, flights of stairs involved and distance traveled. If the customer wants to tip the Helper/team, they may do so after the job is complete within the app.
Q: What does scheduling and availability look like?
A: Dolly pickup can be scheduled between 8 am-9 pm, 365 days a year. The customer picks a 30-minute window at his or her convenience. Dollys can be scheduled same day as soon as 90 minutes from when the request is made. Customers should ensure a Goodwill donation center or retail store is open during the selected time window.
