!--paging_filter--pa href="http://www.seattlemag.com/article/designer-watch-moorea-seal"Moorea Seal/a, emSeattle/em magazine’s Designer to Watch for jewelry in 2012, has opened a super-cool online shop (with a huge a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/pages/about-us" target="_blank"team/a of helpers), called, appropriately, a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/" target="_blank"mooreaseal.com/a. The site is focused on beautiful artisan-made items by US-based designers, including a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/collections/moorea-seal" target="_blank"Seal’s jewelry line/a, a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/collections/balue-co" target="_blank"Balue/Co/a (another emSeattle/em mag a href="http://www.seattlemag.com/article/notecards-balueco"fave/a), awesome bags from a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/collections/pine-boon" target="_blank"Pine + Boon/a (another local talent), as well as beautiful pieces by *a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/collections/evidence-jewelry" target="_blank"Evidence Jewelry/a and a href="http://www.mooreaseal.com/collections/mineralogy" target="_blank"Mineralogy/a (seen in the photo above). Seven percent of all the proceeds benefit local nonprofits, designated into five cause categories, Caring for Animals, Health + Wellness, Children’s Needs, Women’s Causes and Protecting Our Planet, an element of the shop that Seal calls “essential.” Each designer on the site has chosen to partner with a category that they care about and shoppers have the option to shop by cause, which empowers them as consumers./p
pInteresting to note about Seal: she has a mega-huge online following. “I have over 3,000 followers of my a href="http://www.moorea-seal.com/" target="_blank"personal blog/a and over 850,000 followers on a href="http://pinterest.com/mooreaseal/" target="_blank"Pinterest/a,” she says. “I've been ranked in the top 200 pinners out of millions of people, since Pinterest launched a few years ago. I was even picked by Pinterest to be featured in 2012's Christmas campaign 30 Days of Pinspiration along side Anthropologie, Refinery 29 and Nina Garcia!”/p
