The Handcrafted Community Helps

Abdela Bracelet

However devastated I feel at the human suffering in Haiti, I also feel uplifted by the outpouring of help, love, and support from so many people.  The community of handcrafted artisans is working hard to do its share.

All profits from the sale of any of my jewelry during this time will be donated to Haitian relief efforts.  This bracelet was inspired by the sails of Haitian fishing boats during my visit to Haiti this past summer.  The colors of the beads and their age and resulting wear remind me of the beautiful, weathered sails.

Listed below are other handcrafted artisans who are helping Haiti through various efforts.  If you can, please support my effort, any one of theirs, or start your own.  With heartfelt thanks, Charlene.
