Michel-Ange Necklace

Haiti's Jewels

Why you'll love it: This long necklace is an instant favorite with its unique colors and high quality. 

How it's made: Hand-cutting Haitian goat leather into long strips and weaving its ends with turquoise accent beads, attaching a triple-layered majok seed centerpiece to either end. 

Made for you by: Michel-Ange Fleurant, a young mother of two children, who has received training and a microfinance loan from Haiti's Jewels. Michel-Ange is very responsible with her money and as a result, saves hundreds of dollars every month to re-invest in her family and quality of life. She recently purchased a $1,500 plot of land and only had to borrow $400 from Haiti’s Jewels, which she’s already paid off. On this land, she is building a home for her family and has started a small food/drink business that two of her unemployed cousins have been able to earn a stable income from.

Your purchase supports: Skills training and microloans for women in Haiti.
