These fun, funky brass and Haitian clay bead bracelets are spunky ways to share the love with anyone who happens to compliment your new favorite accessory!
We love that the red and black speck beads are the essence of 100% handmade Haiti - from the hand-dug clay of Haitian plateaus to the hand-rolling of the beads to the hand-glazing and firing to finish each bead before hand-stringing them with the ripple-y brass beads and the curved brass tubes, even accenting them with stamped Beljoy circles and heart charms.
If intentionality could be seen, this bracelet boldly exemplifies it as a statement of the Haitian people rising out of the chaos and poverty from broken governments and natural disaster-stricken environments to create new lives and dreams through organizations like Beljoy that create jobs and sustainable income. Join their movement toward freedom by purchasing this bracelet and any of our Beljoy or other Haiti collections to increase your impact on the hard-working Haitian artisans.
From Beljoy: "Our clay beads are hand rolled, making each one unique and a small piece of art. The clay is dug by hand from natural deposits in Haiti’s central plateau. The raw clay is then broken into a fine powder and the impurities are sifted out. The powdered clay is mixed with water and then dried on a plater to remove excess moisture. Skilled artisans roll these clay beads in a variety of sizes and shapes, then each piece is hand-painted with glaze. The finished pieces are fired in a kiln which transforms the raw clay to permanent ceramic, and the raw glazes to brightly-colored glass. Each piece is unique and one of a kind."
