Béljoy offers women in Haiti the opportunity to earn a dignified and consistent wage through the art of jewelry making. By teaching this trade and paying a superior wage, we hope to encourage women and empower them to provide for their families.
Many families in Haiti are at risk to relinquishing their children to orphanages due to economic instability. Beljoy's program helps keep families together. Beljoy was founded on a vision, to create dignified and honest employment for the people of Haiti. To give the people the opportunity and market access to make a fair wage for their family.
This bracelet is so beautiful I hesitate to share. I am officially big bone. Funny but true. It’s a tad tight. I’d prefer to have one more bead’s width.
But I am totally wearing it all day and night this past week and getting used to it. I ordered these to try them out before buying some as gifts. It’s a total win!! Not many of my friends have a 6’ body and the big bones. Keeping these for myself and will order more soon. Not now though. Going deep into trauma counseling and moving 2,717 miles away. But soon I will order some more of these, they are lovely!!! Thanks so much!
I enjoyed my first cafe visit, and am loving the bracelets I picked up from the gift shop. The howlite and lava stones are great quality, absorbing my essential oils of choice easily. Overall great experience! I'll be back!
I was happy to find your website and products after seeing you listed by
Oh Boy Records as a way to memorialize John Prine. Our entire family loved John Prine, and we have seen him perform many times.
My husband sings and plays John Prine songs for all of us, and his touching and funny lyrics.... laced with humanity....will touch us all forever.
Your company is amazing in its scope of work and the mission it has taken on. Helping women to become who they really are is a lofty goal.
I purchased three lava bead bracelets ( Bebble and Bestie) and essential oil to infuse them with.
I have one for myself, and I am using Calm oil on it to help me stay in the moment during our pandemic days.
I will give the others to our daughters for Mother’s Day. The fact that the bracelets can be “curative”, and also be in memory of John Prine is wonderful.
I will keep Thistle Farms in mind for other gifts and household items.
