As you know, every piece of beadwork in the entire Beaded Hope collection is hand-crafted by artists in South Africa. None of our beadwork is ever mass-produced or manufactured. When you order a piece of beadwork, you can be sure that a woman in South Africa hand-made that item. And each hand-made ornaments is packaged for gift giving. So, when you order an ornament, it comes in an organza gift bag with a card that tells the story of Beaded Hope and explains that their gift is impacting women on the other side of the world. In order to custom package each beadwork gift, we suggest placing large Christmas order in advance. That way, we can be sure that the women are working on exactly what you've ordered. I know, it might be hard to believe, we are already taking orders for Christmas ornaments. But last year we sold out of snowmen in only six (yes, SIX) days! So, if you would like to go ahead a place an order just drop me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I'll be sure to get your order placed ahead of the rush.
