Béljoy is a distinct line of handcrafted jewelry produced in the US by local artisans. From 2015 to May of 2020 (COVID19), Béljoy had offered men + women in Haiti the opportunity to earn a dignified and consistent wage through the art of jewelry making. Since COVID-19 & the political unrest in Haiti, we have not been able to rely on production there. However, Béljoy is currently committed to building homes for women and their families in Haiti and investing in children's education. We do this through actual relationships with individuals and partner organizations. Béljoy also supports local US organizations helping women to become sustainable & care for their children.
Our name... The Haitian people have changed our lives, showing us that true joy, despite circumstance, can only come from Jesus. That joy inspires the name Béljoy: BÉL means beautiful in Haiti's native language of Creole. The Haitians’ glad hearts are beautiful and their faces are a clear reflection of the JOY they have.
