The Matinia Necklace was designed to help off-set the cost of Zel, a non-profit program instituted by Chances for Children. This special, limited time only design, will be offered until we run out of stock! The necklaces are "18" silver plated chain with aluminum pendant inscribed with "LOVE". These will make the perfect Valentine's Day gift. Please note that aluminum is a wonderful soft metal to learn jewlery stamping, but it does scratch easier than other metals.
The necklace's namesake, Matinia, a mother of five, started learning to sew at the Zel sewing roomin March 2017. Matinia had been regularly bringing her children to one of the feeding programs before our Medical Clinic manager referred her to Zel. Until Matinia was competent at sewing, she was assembling these necklaces to earn income. She has continued to make them on the side for us to help us off set our program costs.
Thank you for supporting Zel Haiti!
