Not too long ago my sister, who lives in New York, was going through a bit of a tough time. Missing her and feeling very far away I wanted to send her something to lift her spirits, and unfortunately flowers weren’t going to cut it.
I came across Fli beads on Facebook and sent Keeylen (one of the owners) an email asking her if she could custom make a few bracelets for me and I would somehow get them to my sister.
However, as luck would have it, Keeylen happened to be in The Big Apple at that time and in a few days she had made up the bracelets and posted them directly to my sister’s home address. (Yes, apparently carrier pigeons are also still reliable in the States.)
The designers at Fli not only make beautiful bespoke jewellery, but they offer the kind of personal online service that makes you want to hug your computer.
Here’s a bit more about the jewellery line:
Fli believes every great dream begins with a dreamer. Their unique handcrafted jewellery, made in South Africa, spreads ideas of Freedom, Love& Imagination to the world & encourages others to dream without limits & achieve their aspirations.
The designers of Fli are motivated by the network of universal energy that links all aspects together. Danielle Morrison & Keelyn Crowley create jewellery that acts as reminders to others that jewellery is an art and every individual can express it in their own way.
A portion of the proceeds are donated to a South African-based non-profit organization, which cares for impoverished, abused, & AIDS infants.
Follow them on facebook.com/flisouthafrica or www.flibeads.com and have a look at their latest collections.
