(GAINESVILLE, Fla.) – At the recent Ronald McDonald House Golf Tournament held in Gainesville, Florida, Bernard Reller’s “Golf ‘n’ Gators” Bead Bracelet was a hit of the charity auction. SwampGoldTM is the brand name for Reller’s line of University of Florida Gator and Florida inspired jewelry available at local retailers and throughout the state.

“Bracelet Beads are a hot category and the right combination makes for lively bidding,” comments designer, Bernard Reller.
SwampGoldTM items are obvious “in-kind” donations for events around Florida, but Reller produces many items for his customers to offer to their favorite charity events around the country “at very reasonable prices!” Bernard is quick to add.
One recent fund raising project for Fernbaughs Jewelers in Indiana, involves a pendant/tie-tac design inspired by the logo for the local hospital. Fernbaughs will pass the items along to the Hospital Foundation at little or no profit, but will generate immeasurable goodwill in the community.
“Our whole crew enjoys working on these projects – there’s good energy from all involved,” says Reller.
Fernbaughs, Brian VanDuyne, originally contacted Bernard after reading a Southern Jewelry News/Mid-America Jewelry News article about Reller’s Custom Local Beads program. Together they created beads and charms celebrating the Annual Marshall County Blueberry Festival – now entering it’s 43rd year – that should harvest rewards for years to come. The Fernbaughs’ BlueberryCharm.com website displays the collection in 14K gold and sterling with lapis berries.
