Chubby Chico Charms
In 2005 Alana and Bianca Alicea discussed the idea for an all-handmade jewelry company that could have unique stylish designs while still being American made. With a background in jewelry design and hailing from Rhode Island, which was once known as "The Jewelry Capital of the World", both women decided to put their innovative skills to good use and help bring manufacturing back to the states. Years later they expanded to a full bath, beauty, and candle line as well. With the expansion of their fundraising program ChubbyChicoCharms has helped thousands of organizations raise millions of dollars in much needed funds for education, illness awareness, children's groups, sports teams and so many more. None of this would have been possible without dedication, hard work, a tight knit family, and a strong mother/daughter team.
