Announcement   ✿Let your heart bring you to places you most love with our jewel maps✿

My name is Mar, I'm a jewelry designer and adoptive mother.
When I was waiting for the arrival of my son Roc , I felt the need to wear something that would get me close to him and comfort me through the waiting. I decided to make a special, unique Jewel with the shape of Africa, with a heart engraved in Mali, the place where my son would be born.
Roc is my son. We went to meet him in 2011, and since then, the African Dreamland project has constantly expanded, allocating part of the benefits to support charities for orphaned children from Mali and other adoption projects.

When you buy a jewel in our little store, you not only acquire a unique jewel exclusively handmade for you, but also contribute to make our world a better place.

About

A trip to love.

My name is Mar, I am an artisan jeweler and an adoptive mother.
When I was waiting for the arrival of my son Roc , I felt the need to wear something that would get me close to him and comfort me through the waiting. Not being pregnant to remind me I was going to be a mother, I decided to make a special, unique Jewel with the shape of Africa, with a heart engraved in Mali, the place where my son would be born.
On the long journey, I made close friends with many mothers in my same situation and shared the joys and anguishes on the way to our children. Many of them would ask me for necklaces or jewels like mine, but personalised for their own situations, continents or countries of origin of their children.
This scenario is where the African Dreamland project emerged from, intended for the awaiting adoptive families. With the collected money from sales, I created a supportive bag full of clothes, feeds and medicines that I took to Mali when I traveled to meet my son.
Roc is my son. We went to meet him in 2011, and since then, the African Dreamland project has constantly expanded, allocating part of the benefits to support charities for orphaned children from Mali and other adoption projects.
African Dreamland is my most personal Project and it is as special as my son. Thus, I have special care in all the details of the process: from the use of sustainable materials (our argent is ARgentium Silver 935, an anti-allergenic alloy that cannot oxidize and keeps always perfect; and the gold we used is Fairtrade Gold from fair trade) to the careful and customized elaboration, always guaranteeing the delivery and a fast shipment.
When you buy a jewel in our little store, you not only acquire a unique jewel exclusively handmade for you, but also contribute to make our world a better place.

Care instructions

Both sterling silver and Gold jewels will tarnish over time.
The extensive exposure to air, high humidity, sweat, skin/hair products,
and rubber all hasten the oxidation process.
Here are a few quick tips to help:
TO KEEP ITEMS SHINY:
Keep enclosed in the purple bag when not used.
Avoid using any rubber products when displaying.
Clean jewel with a polishing cloth after wearing.
CLEANING YOUR JEWEL:
Use a polishing cloth as your primary cleaning tool.
Use sterling silver liquid cleaner as seldom as possible.
Both polishing and liquid cleaners can be found at most major departaments stores.

How to custom the jewel

I can customize this pendant FREE OF CHARGE:
