Giving Back to the Community

I have chosen New Horizons, a shelter for victims of domestic violence as a way of giving back to the community. As of 2018, I donate 5% from every jewelry sale to this local organization. I chose them because there is someone near and dear to my heart who suffered domestic violence. I didn't know about it until she had gotten up the courage to leave.
I created this Healing Heart Pendant Necklace as a symbol for the cause that I donate to. The cut down the middle is the scar left from healing. Each scar is different because each survivor has their own story. Therefore, no two heart  pendant necklaces will be the same. I hand cut, texture, sand and rivet each heart pendant. I also donate 20% from every sale of my Healing Heart Pendant Necklace to New Horizons.
New Horizons is a shelter for individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence. They now provide shelter and services to seven counties in Wisconsin. They have staff on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. The victims are provided with shelter, clothing, personal items, and food donated by the community. Often times, they leave with just the clothes they are wearing. New Horizons also provides the following services to help the victims and their families rebuild their lives.
