Etsy Key Necklaces

This week’s feature of the Etsy shop are the Key of Hope necklaces. These $10 necklaces are made with unique, vintage keys strung on gunmetal chains. They are long enough to hang mid-torso, and the vintage feel is great for layering with other eclectic pieces.

As always, all proceeds benefit Little Known Help Zone’s monthly classroom project.

Costa Rica Fundraiser

The Costa Rica fundraising portion has been completed!

If you don’t remember, Little Known Help Zone is raising money to send a child to the Jumpstart English Language learning camp in Costa Rica through Amigos of Costa Rica. (amigosofcostarica.com)

50 bracelets sold at $4 a piece will raise the necessary money to send this child. As the fundraiser continues, a tally will be kept of how many were sold.

The bracelet selection includes various items from the easy shop, as well as 37 new bracelets made by Little Known Help Zone. These are soda tab bracelets, but they are smaller to fit child sized wrists. Many also fit adult wrists. What makes these special is 20 of them were made by my Gifted Seminar class, one class working to send a student to class abroad.

Here’s a peak of the bracelets.

After the fundraiser, Little Known Help Zone will work to have these bracelets sold at local shops as well as online to support the cause!

Esty Feature- Recycled Soda Tab Bracelets

A year ago I visited Puerto Viejo in Costa Rica and saw how eco friendly all of their goods was. Everything was recycled into something new, and I was inspired to make a bracelet that shared that energy.

This bracelet is made from recycled soda tabs, suede, and beads and is adjustable to fit any size. Super stylish yet a great way to recycle! It can be worn with many outfits and fits just about every style.
