Handmade jewelry created from recycled materials, carefully crafted by women in Jordan.


We are a group of artisans that looks more like a family

We are a community of 12 artisans from Aqaba, Jordan. Our artisans all come from backgrounds of poverty, but they are far more than their economic and social circumstances. They are mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives who embrace their ability to provide for themselves and their families. They take great joy in their work and knowing that their creations are being enjoyed by people around the world. We seek to make great product, celebrate life together as a family, and to be an inspiration to those around us.

Why recycled?
We want to do our part to care for the environment and show others how they can do the same.

Paper Beads

We obtain magazines from local hotels and turn them into beautiful beads. Our artisans have spent  years perfecting their color selection and bead rolling skills.

While we started by collecting sea glass at the sea, we now utilize recycled bottles that are collected from local hotels and restaurants and then tumbled with sand and water.
