Alissa B launched the Pandemic Piece- Passion Project back in July 2020 via Instagram shortly after first Quarantine, when almost the entire world was shut down, and wonderful volunteers of Meals on Wheels were driving meals to the elderly and paying visits to those who were even more isolated from their families than everyone else.
It took me a couple of months to put my idea into fruition to design a piece that would not only represent humanity during such unprecedented times, but symbolize the isolation factor of social distancing that so many people experienced. There are so many different perspectives and experiences throughout this last year, and I wanted each piece to be one of a kind to represent just that.
Each piece of Jasper is unique and represents that of mother nature/planet earth, with the smaller piece off to the size resembling a little globe at least 6 chain links apart to represent social distancing.
Each necklace is 18″ unless specified otherwise. Here is how it works:
- Choose your stone by writing the number or letter in the notes at checkout. I will do my best to keep the photo of whats available updated after each sale.
- Choose the metal for the chain from the drop down menu. Choices include copper $48, sterling silver $60, or 14kit gold filled $70 from the drop down menu.
- $10 is donated to Meals on Wheels America
- Custom requests accepted – simply contact me
For those on Social Media, you can check out the Pandemic Piece highlight on my Alissab_customjewelry instagram page to view more details including videos and available Jasper pieces.
It would be so appreciated if you could share this link and or my social media post to inform as many people as possible. So far I have raised $270 for MOW with the help of all the purchases and support. My goal is to reach $500. We can do it!
BIG shout out to the Rants and Raves Podcast for bringing humor to an otherwise pretty chaotic year and raving about this Passion Project in episode 70.
Thanks so much!

I’m so excited and in love with Alissa’s Passion Project as well as the Imperial Jasper necklaces she is making. Her Jasper pieces are all beautiful and different that I couldn’t decide which one to get so why choose and I got 3 necklaces. They are all so lovely and such great pieces that I get compliments every time I wear them. It’s a extra love and bonus to be able to support such a great cause!

When I first saw some of the stones I thought WOW! Each stone had it’s own unique shape and coloration. Add to that it was for a good cause. I thought what a thoughtful and caring person she was, especially at such a time of uncertainty of the virus that effected everyone to some degree. I bought one and fell in love with it immediately. So I bought another very different then the first. And so far I have a collection of 4. People don’t talk to me anymore, they talk to my necklaces! LOL Thank you so much Alissa!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Alissa’s Passion Project or these gorgeous necklaces. Every single piece of Jasper is completely unique and one of a kind, in addition to being absolutely stunning. No matter which stone you choose and which type of chain, you are guaranteed to have a 100% customized necklace unique to you. I fell in love with my first necklace so much that I kept ordering more. I now have four, in a variety of colors/shades on different styles of chains (2 standard length silver, 1 copper, 1 long/wrap style silver). I have also purchased one as a birthday surprise for a very dear friend. I absolutely love each and every one of mine and wear one of them daily. I truly believe in the healing properties of the Jasper as well. I feel just off, less centered, and not as calm if I don’t have one on. When you combine all of this with Alissa’s compassion and generosity in donating a portion of the sales from these to Meals on Wheels, how can you go wrong!!

I have purchased several Pandemic Passion Project necklaces and have received one as a gift. I am a huge fan of these necklaces. I wear one almost everyday because I love the healing properties of the Jasper stone. I also think it is wonderful that part of the sales go to Meals On Wheels. I am a volunteer for this organization so I am very aware of the good work they do. I highly recommend Pandemic Passion Project necklaces. You will not regret getting anyone of these necklaces.
Love wearing my jasper and knowing that this piece is apart of a collection that brings food and connection during the pandemic makes wearing it even more significant and enjoyable!
“We are not all in the same boat, we are all in the same storm”. Alissa’s vision for giving back to the community is the cherry on top of adding her beautiful pieces to your wardrobe. Whether I am in tennies or heels my outfit isn’t complete with out my Alissa B. I always get compliments on her lovely creations.
