It is a natural response for Jill Duzan to give back to our community. It has been a lifestyle decision her entire career – as an interior designer as well as a jewelry artisan. ‘Who are we if we aren’t living for something bigger than ourselves’ is the way she lives and treats others.

Giving Back

kNOT Today

kNOT Today was founded by Frank Reich (former head coach of the Indianapolis Colts) and his wife Linda. The mission is to generate awareness, initiate prevention strategies, and assist in the development of innovative healing programs for sexually abused and exploited children. Jill designed a sterling silver charm based on the kNOT Today logo that is hand-casted by Reis Nichols Jewelers in Indianapolis, then connected with a leather bracelet band. All proceeds go directly to the foundation.

Go Red for Women

Jill created a Go Red bracelet featuring a large silver chain with a ruby drop. This bracelet was sold at an event, where proceeds went to raise money for the American Heart Association.

The ruby drop is an outward expression, a reminder to share the Go Red story. The silver links of the bracelet remind us that we are linked together in life, and in the fight for heart health.

Leftover Beads

Once or twice a year, Jill donates leftover beads and stones to a local community center so children there can experiment with jewelry design on their own. We love the idea of nurturing young designers and passing the torch!

Folds of Honor Indiana

The JD Folds of Honor Collection was designed to support and raise awareness of the good works that Folds of Honor Indianapolis is doing to change the lives of our veterans and their families. Jill Duzan has designed bracelets and charms that can be worn alone or together to symbolize the Folds of Honor message of Honor – Sacrifice – Hope. Jill Duzan Jewelry will give 20% of the proceeds of the sales of these items to support the mission of Folds of Honor Indiana.

Jill Duzan Experience Silent Auction Item

Do you have a silent auction to raise funds for your charitable organization? Jill is proud to offer the JD Experience as an auction item. In this experience, the purchaser and 5-7 friends, family, or coworkers can gather in the Treetop Studio or place of their choice and receive a private Jill Duzan shopping experience with a member of the JD team. The host receives $300 in JD Bucks to spend that evening, and each guest receives a JD gift. Total value is $1000. If you would like to offer this experience in your silent auction, call Jill to discuss this possibility and the details!
