How Africandreamland Jewelry started
How AfricanDreamland Jewelry started…
My name is Mar, I am an artisan jeweler and an adoptive mother from Barcelona.
I made Personalized Jewel Maps.
The project of AfricanDreamland emerged when my husband and I decided to make a trip to Bamako to meet our son. We had to wait a lot to travel, so I needed something that could comfort me meanwhile.
That’s when I created my first Africa Map Jewel!
Many of waiting adoptive mothers would ask me for necklaces or jewels like mine, but personalised for their own situations, continents or countries of origin of their children.
Later on, as started to sell my jewelry, I was able to save money for bringing supportive aid to Mali Pouponiere, where my son was waiting for us: clothes, food and medication ares constantly needed.
So, ever since 2011 when we met our son, Africandreamland has been expanding constantly and allocating part of the benefits to support orphaned children from Mali and other adoption projects.
AfricanDreamland 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.
