Frequently Asked Questions

We'd love for you to get to know us and understand our vision better. 


how are you involved with the cervical cancer screenings?

We have partnered with a local Malawian NGO that already has a brilliant program in place to administer and educate the female community in Malawi on cervical cancer screenings.  While we take no part in administering the screenings ourselves, we devote a portion of our profits that go directly to the NGO so they can sustainably continue their efforts in cervical cancer treatment and education.  

Where do you source your materials from?

A private mining company in northern Malawi called Mzimba Gemstone Mining Cooperative extended their partnership to us.  The stones will be ethically mined and traded through this private mining group.  The metals we use to build our pieces are bought from small-business owners located across the United States. 

Where are you located?

While most important of the work is done in Malawi, we are located in sunny San Diego, CA. 

how do you accept payments?

We accept all forms of credit/debit and payments through Paypal upon checkout.

Do you accept returns or refunds?

We do accept returns and full refunds if the circumstances are within our Returns and Refunds Policy.
