How our beads are made.
Posted by Jennifer Schaafsma on
All of Jennifer's jewelry is original & handmade using quality components.
Jennifer has a Bachelor of Arts degree from Purdue University and has been creating Jewelry since 2002. Her newest line of jewelry is inspired by cereal-box beads from Haiti. The up-cycled cereal box cardboard is rolled into colorful, lightweight beads that lend themselves to a variety of creations. Jennifer purchases the finished beads from the Hearts and Hands Children's Home in Haiti. In addition to buying the beads from HHH, ten percent of the proceeds from all the Jewelry Jennifer creates and sells through Heart Creations is donated to young ladies aging out of the children's home. This provides "seed money" for them as they transition to an occupation.
