Maple & J is a handmade e-commerce jewelry line made to wear all the time. In 2013, Maple & J Founder, Cara Hochhalter, began experimenting in her family's laundry room to create simple and durable bangles for her children who were toddlers at the time. Since then, the brand has grown into a way to stay connected to loved ones and look fashionable at the same time. The current line consists of bangles, chains and rings in gold and silver made for women, men and children of all ages. The style is simple and effortless, genuine and durable, and made to stick with you through all of life's up and downs. There is no need to remove for bathing, exercising, or cleaning because every piece is made from quality metals. Maple & J stands for what is real and tough, yet sentimental, because the pieces become part of the story of whoever wears them. The company employs a network of stay-at-home moms who use the job as a way to work and stay home with their kids- a cause that is very close to Cara's heart. In 2018, the brand launched its "Wear It to Share It" campaign which includes a free bangle in every 10th order with the intention that the recipient would have an extra bangle "on hand" to bless to a deserving friend or stranger.
