FAQ'S

TELL ME ABOUT YOUR HEARTS OF HOPE

Our Hearts of Hope are not mass produced. They are hand crafted with a lot of love and care in our Sydney studio. The artworks that lie under the glass dome have all been hand painted by me and reflect my signature abstract, organic and textural style. I've been told they look like the rugs I design but mini versions! The hearts can be worn as a pendant, used as a key ring or attached to clothes or a bag with a safety pin. Many people also just keep them close as a reminder that someone loves and cares for them.

The hearts are attached with a safety pin to a beautiful card with a heartwarming message. We currently have four different messages. Each card has space at the back for you to write your own personal message as well if you wish to. Each card is then placed in a cellophane bag, wrapped and shipped off to you with love and thanks for spreading kindness!

WHERE ARE YOUR HEARTS OF HOPE MADE?

Apart from one of our components, our Hearts of Hope and cards are created, printed, assembled and packed right here in Australia.
