The Petal Connection first started out around 2006 by identical twin sisters, Alanna and Gennelle Dedek. They began by creating one of a kind wearable pieces made of all natural flowers, petals and leaves. As time went on, real butterflies were added to the line. Their start in creating unique jewelry pieces has blossomed into a whole family obsession.
Each piece of The Petal Connection jewelry is hand crafted in Southern California, without any machines, mass-production, or hired workers. The jewelry line has grown to include earrings, pendants, bracelets, brooches and rings, as well as pieces made out of real butterfly wings. Each of these natural works of wearable nature art will set the wearer apart from the crowd.
And not only will you feel good in a Petal Connection piece, you can also feel good about what they give back. Petal Connection has chosen Kiva, a non-profit organization, as their charity of choice. Alanna and Gennelle feel connected to the world in this way, with Kiva, the girls extend loans to women in third world countries trying to start their own businesses. It's a powerful and sustainable way to empower someone and to potentially lift themselves out of poverty. Now that puts a new spin on giving someone wings that we can all get behind!
