JBJD in the Community
Fall, 2021 — Order of Sport
In 2021, we were so honoured to have the opportunity to create the pins for the recipients of the Order of Sport! The Order of Sport is Canada’s highest sporting honour, celebrating those who not only excel in their sport, but go beyond their podium to build Canada through the transformative power of sport.
Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame believes that becoming the best, isn’t only about athletic prowess, but about giving back to the community that supported their journey. The Order of Sport recognizes those who are great in sport, and good for community.
Spring, 2021 — Lake Winnipeg Foundation
In the spring of 2021, we partnered with Lake Winnipeg Foundation and created the JBJD + LWF Collection. In 2020, we put a call out on social media and asked local Lake Winnipeg beachcombers to send us their favourite lucky hole stones. We selected 10 of these stones to create the sterling silver pieces that were in the collection, which was available until December, 2021.
This limited-time collection was extra special to us as lucky stones found on these shores have influenced Johanna's jewellery design since childhood and continue to play a role in her career.
All proceeds were donated to @savelakewpg, an environmental non-profit organization working to protect the health of Lake Winnipeg, now and for future generations.
2018-2022 — Team Jennifer Jones, Official Jewellery Sponsor
Johanna and Jennifer met in 2008 at a JBJD show. Jennifer made her first JBJD order that year and so began their friendship. The Olympic gold medalist has beautifully worn numerous JBJD pieces throughout the years, particularly our necklaces! Johanna is proud to have been the jewellery sponsor for Team Jennifer Jones from 2018-2022.
The Team Jones Collection
Johanna and Team Jennifer Jones have also partnered to create the Team Jones Collection. The collection consists of the Team Jones necklace, a sterling silver lucky stone on a chunky chain, earrings, cufflinks, and a bracelet. A portion of all online sales from the Team Jennifer Jones Collection will be donated to Special Olympics Canada.
