These bracelets are handmade by the students in our Professional School, they learn twice a week how to roll beads for these bracelets. The beads are made from cereal boxes and other cardboard boxes that we recycle in Haiti. We cut, wrap, glue, and varnish each bead by hand so each bead is different and each bead has its own story. All the materials from the accent beads to the string are purchesed at the market in Haiti.
This bracelet wraps perfectly around your wrist three times and creates a beautiful stacked look. Its easy to put on and because of its colorful design its a statement piece that adds fun to any outfit.
The money from your purchase will be used in two different ways;
First, 40% will go to our Professional School to insure that the teachers have the materials they need to teach with. This is crucial to the success of our program!
Second, 60% will go back to the student who made the piece. A portion of this will be put into a saving account for our students to use to kickstart a career or to further their education and the rest is given as payment for their work.

When it comes to shipping out of Haiti we have found that because of our size the best solution is to transport our good in suitcases which we take back every other month. Because of this we are likely to sell out of popular items and have a longer waiting period to restock items. So if an item is sold out please let us know you are interested so we can make sure it is included in our next shipment.
Shipping within the states starts from our office in Dennison, Ohio and is shipped through UPS Priority Mail which means deliever could take anywhere from 3-5 days once your order is processed. You will recieve a tracking number when your item is shipped. We appreciate your patience and grace as we are trying to work through our logistic challanges that come from shipping from a third world country.
