Our Story

For Keeps Sake Designs is based in Richmond, Virginia and was founded by myself (Shaina Miesnik) & my husband (James Miesnik) following the unexpected loss of our 4 month old son, Ethan, to SIDS. Our mission is to provide parents and women with awesome keepsakes and gifts, promote local artisans, and bring something unique to Richmond. Sass Knucklz are Patent Pending and were inspired by our 3 girls Jackie, Kimora, and Breigh. Sass Knucklz promote love not hate. When worn it is a reminder to our girls to love and respect themselves and others! Handcrafted from tulle, pom poms, genuine Swarovski crystal beads, and personalized sterling silver heart letter beads, it's complete with all the Sass a tough girl needs! With every sale from our site, 10% is donated to help fund SIDS research and education.
