Sweet, yet chic. Brick red and blush pink handmade clay beads from our own backyard in Gonaives meet an upcycled aluminum disk. Pair it with our aluminum necklaces or earrings!
Over the course of several days, locally sourced dry clay is made into a moldable form, kneaded into shape, kiln-fired, glazed and fired again. The group started with just 2 people who used 50 cents to buy some clay and a bowl to use as a kiln. Today, our clay group, made up of 14 people, supports up to 20 families in Gonaives. A true redemptive story of starting with what you have and watching it multiply!
Local materials and local skills are married to make our beautiful aluminum pieces! Recycled aluminum is melted and poured into sand molds to set by makers who have been working with aluminum to make cooking pots for years. Then it is cleaned and handed over to another set of makers to be stamped with individual letters. Each piece is labor-full. Which we love, because more labor means more people with jobs!
Our jewelry products are hand assembled in-house by our amazing jewelry team!
