Jewelry has becomes so much more than a mere adornment over the last decade. Smart jewelry can tell you your heart rate or alert you of an email or help you find your way home, among a million other duties. But one woman dared to create a different kind of smart jewelry, made initially to cool down menopausal women but hitting a much bigger audience.
According to Connie Sherman of Hot Girl Pearls:
“I went to the store and bought a bag of those colorful plastic ice cubes — the kind that don’t melt in your drink. They’re filled with water and you just stick them in the freezer and they stay cold for hours. I taped them to a string and wrapped them around my neck and I knew, at that moment, I was on to something.”
“They kept the chill for about 45 minutes. And I knew if I could find a way to make an attractive necklace that worked in the same way, there were lots of women who would want one. I couldn’t be the only one schvitzing her way through menopause.”
But it wasn’t just women who were dealing with menopause who were logging on to Connie’s website. It was women who were undergoing chemotherapy, others who had migraines, even women who had lupus and multiple sclerosis — things she’d never considered.
