There are many different
types of jewelry that H.O.P.E. can provide for your fund raising project
or for retail sales. When you place an order you will be giving
employment to women with no other options, helping to save the women and
their families, while also providing help for the starving orphans and
other impoverished children supported by Ekukhanyeni, the orphans
project which H.O.P.E. funds. In the truest sense, you will be putting
food into the mouths of these hungry children.
The bracelets currently being made are simple African beaded bracelets,
made from wooden and Tibetan silver or copper beads and other natural
materials. We are keeping the costs low so that groups can buy the items
and then re-sell them at a price that will make sales easy. And note
that all of our jewelry is made from beads which have been
laboratory-tested and shown to be both lead-free and nickel-free.
Bracelets #1 through #7 which are shown immediately below here are those
which are available now for any organization or group to sell for a fund
raising program. Other designs that include not only bracelets but also
necklaces and key chains are also available through custom orders. For
more information on that, see below.
Bracelet #1, Sea Dreams, is made with a tropical mixture of blue, green,
and purple wooden beads in round and tube shapes. It has one Tibetan
silver bead imprinted with the word HOPE. It is available in the
standard women's size of 7 ½ inches.
Bracelet #2, Carnival Fantasy, is made with a bright multicolored
mixture that includes yellow, blue, green, and red wooden beads in round

Bracelets #3 and #4, Heart of Africa, have a traditional African mixture

that allows them to be adjusted down to a teen size of 6 inches or all
the way up to a small men's size of 8 ½ inches. We usually have a number
of different color combinations available, including the ones you see
here which use different mixtures of aqua, coffee, purple, apple green,
and red beads.
In addition to these standard bracelets, we can do custom orders upon
request. If you prefer traditional African jewelry, you can request a
specific design for bracelets, necklaces, or key rings, or just allow
our beaders to make designs of their own choosing, using the colors and
symbols traditional to their native cultures, while using the materials
you specify. You can also integrate into these traditional designs a
symbol or charm of your choosing.
Bracelets can be customized in many ways, using school colors, or adding
a bead or charm with a logo or symbol or name or mascot. Possibilities
include Greek letters and beads shaped like a soccer ball, football,
basketball, fish, heart, or other shape. We can also do custom orders
for necklaces, either in a simple choker design or with pendants.
Also available through custom order are our key rings, a popular unisex
item for fund raising sales. Key rings can be made in a variety of
designs, using traditional African beading or school colors.
Beaded items are also available in sets, perhaps a bracelet with a key
ring, or a bracelet with a matching necklace, or all three.
Since many of these beads are hand made, a particular bead is not always
available but we can usually make a design similar to the examples you
see here. There are many additional designs that can be produced, based
on your specifications.
As examples of what can be customized, the wooden bead bracelets you see
below can be made with a center bead that is imprinted with a design of
your choice. The cost will depend on what you request, but in general,
there will just be an additional flat fee for the custom printing of the
For school organizations which wish to request a school slogan or
symbol, it will be necessary for the organization to receive permission
from the school or university, or obtain any necessary license that

designs or school colors

mixture of porcelain, wooden, glass, and Tibetan silver or copper beads.
Necklaces similar to the ones seen below can be made
with either a large center pendant or in a design that uses a variety of

impoverished women who cannot help themselves.
