Northborough –Julie Booras, the owner of Northborough-based business Heart and Stone Jewelry, would like to help support those affected by the recent Boston Marathon tragedy.

“Living near Boston and being so close to the recent tragic events has made us truly proud of the city we live in,” Booras, a Boston native, said.

She has created a beautiful charm necklace made from recycled fine-silver that hangs on a leather cord. Engraved on the charm is the famous Boston Red Sox “B” and the word “strong.”  The piece is simple, yet reflective, she said, of what it represents: “Boston Strong.”

To purchase this necklace visit http://www.heartandstonejewelry.com/strengthnecklacecart.php.

Twenty-five percent of the sale price of the Boston Strong necklace will go to The One Fund, which was established by Boston Mayor Thomas Menino and Gov. Deval Patrick to help the victims of the tragedy.  Visit onefundboston.org for more information.
