Thanks so much for looking. We're shipping the first half dozen by this weekend.

This is the most important thing my company has ever done.

Stay Well,
Scott & Rhonda

For years I've felt a deep personal calling to do something about the plight of the world’s sea turtles, specifically the Hawksbill Sea Turtle, which has been the sole source of “tortoise shell picks” for hundreds of years. The Hawksbill, even though protected by CITES, has been slaughtered and poached to the brink of extinction. Of the seven species of sea turtles existing in the world today, it is the most endangered.

We wanted to do something about it.

Beginning November 1st Charmed Life Picks began selling the industry's first sea turtle preservation guitar pick, a fundraising model designed to raise money for the protection of sea turtle habitat. The model pictured above, the stf-1, is the first offering in this series. It is a standard 351 teardrop shape at 1.0 mm, in DuPont Vespel polyimide, a legendary picking material in the picking industry. (Speed bevels are available upon request, for free.) The stf-1.0 will sell for $50, with $10 from every sale being donated directly to sea turtle preservation organizations (a full list to follow). That price also includes free shipping to your door.

In addition to supporting our efforts, your name will be posted on our website (unless you prefer to be anonymous) as a donor to our project.

How do you get one? We've sold through our waiting list, and have just a few pieces (less than five) left. It's possible we'll be out till January. Here's the direct link:

This pick was developed to honor my mother, Carolyn Memmer, and in memory of my father, Franklin Charles Memmer, a biology teacher and an early ecologist. Thanks, Ma and Pa.

Happy Holidays,

We're humbled to report that you have made our new Hawksbill Sea Turtle Preservation fundraising pick the #1 selling model in our company. We began envisioning this project about two years ago, doubtful it would ever happen but committed to try. And here we are now, two years later, having successfully launched and been so warmly received by the music community. We are humbled beyond belief.

A reminder that every pick sold ($50) generates a $10 donation to sea turtle preservation non-profits. It also comes with free shipping. We recently established an alliance with a really cool non-profit called See Turtles. Our first donation went to them, and we've formed a kind of loose strategic alliance with them. We'll be donating to other worthy orgs as well, but it's important that we vet them first before donating.

See Turtles runs two websites, https://www.seeturtles.org/ and https://www.tooraretowear.org/.

For those of you who may be new to the plight of sea turtles, "tortoise shell" picks and other decorative shell products come from only one reptile in the world -- the Hawksbill Sea Turtle -- which is the most severely endangered of the seven extant sea turtle species. They are still being poached and slaughtered around the world, even though protected by CITES and serious legal consequences in almost every country.

RUNNING TALLY OF OUR DONATIONS: In the upper right corner of our homepage you'll see a running tally of the funds we've donated so far to sea turtle protection: It's small now, but from the acorn grew the mighty oak. Right now it says, "CLP has donated $168.00 for sea turtle preservation." You'll find it on the far right, just above our menu. https://www.charmedlifepicks.com/

Charmed Life is taking no money from your donations for management of the fund, bookkeeping, shipping, etc. Your ten bucks goes directly to work. When able, we are also making separate donations on behalf of our company.

People pushed us hard, so we've already introduce a second model. This one is also part of our brown series polyimide line, a 1.0 mm triangle with right or left bevels. These will trickle through, and we won't be shipping the first batch till probably about mid-January, but we ARE accepting orders on them now.

You'll find the new model here:

Larry, thanks so much. I cherish our friendship. I hope your sales are doing well down there.

The two sea turtle picks have instantly become the two top sellers in our company. We've put together a dealer program that will also include a $10.00 donation to sea turtle orgs. You might wanna snap a few on your next order.

With a little help from Photoshop, we were able to bring out the actual color of the engraved lime green turtle, which is the same color as our Shamrock logo. We've found that natural sunlight brings out the best in the brown material (luckily we don't live in Minnesota), but also washes out the lime in the logo. So a little help from Adobe gives that back to us. I'm amazed and how well these turned out.



And the teardrop...

Hi, Everyone, and Happy New Year!

The graphic below is a jpg of our running tally of total sea turtle donations, updated monthly. We will be making another healthy contribution the first week in January.



We've been so gratified by the response. The one millimeter brown polyimide teardrop immediately became the number one selling pick in our company.

Please remember that this is not a spot promo from us. We plan to run this program for years, and expect in that time to donate thousands to sea turtle preservation and protection.

We only wanted to do two models, but people demanded a third, so on our store page you'll now see a brown polyimide tri at 1.50 mm. Please Note: We are backed up on these. Any orders on this model are looking at a four-week wait time, minimum. Wish we could turn 'em faster.



Thanks again for your support, and have a great New Year's celebration.

Be Well,
Scott & Rhonda Memmer

Due to the popularity of our Sea Turtle Rescue Initiative, we've added two Vespel 346 triangles into the mix, one at 1.50 mm, the other at 1.0 mm, both with right-handed speed bevels.

The 1.50 mm large triangle instantly became the #2 seller in our entire company.

Thanks again for your support.

Our online store: https://www.charmedlifepicks.com/online-store

1.0 mm genuine DuPont polyimide.



1.15 mm ceruleum artisan casein bioplastic. Folks, I cannot get a decent photo of this material, no matter how hard I try. It is stunning, and this photo doesn't do it justice.
