Makers gonna make! What creations will you make with these beauties? Earrings, necklaces, bracelets? These are a great material for those creative projects stewing around in your brain. Each bead is similar in kind but unique, due to the hand-made nature.

Over the course of several days, locally sourced dry clay is made into a moldable form, kneaded into shape, and kiln-fired and glazed several times. 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!
About the Partner & Their Impact:
Our Impact Partner, 2nd Story Goods understands how it feels to want to buy things that are good for the people who made them, the planet, and you. This is why they have been working on the ground with their artisans in Gonaives, Haiti for 10 years, creating recycled, handcrafted goods for a livable wage. Last year, their impact enabled over 108 children to stay in school, not because of hand-outs, but through the dignity of their parents’ work with 2nd Story Goods.
