“The first time I met Sharla was at small vendor market where she was selling her wares. I stopped to look at all of her gorgeous creations and a conversation ensued on her love for her mission trips and the children there. Of course how could I not support this vision. Well quite a few years have gone by since then and Sharla keeps creating and I keep buying. Most of the jewelry I own is from her collection. Not only do I get tons of compliments but I am supporting an incredible person with a vision to give back!”

“I love Sharla’s work! I am very selective about jewelry because of my job. I like simple, stylish elegance. Sharla has all of that. She is in constant pursuit of learning new things, as she keeps making such amazing pieces that will fit any occasion. Versatile and handmade… for a very good cause. You don’t see that often.”

“I’ve known Sharla since she was in High School, and was my daughter’s best friend. Even then she had a flair for color and design, and I am overjoyed she found her way into jewelry design because we get to share and wear proudly her beautifully crafted pieces and her passion for Swaziland. Since she started Designing for Hope Jewelry we have looked forward each year to see what she comes up with next. I have many of Sharla’s pieces all crafted with loving care, all exquisite in design. I love to Christmas shop with her because each recipient is thrilled with what I choose for them, and they become happy customers as well. She is currently working on something special for my daughter to wear. Very proud to be wearing and giving Designing for Hope Jewelry.”
