While growing up in Hong Kong, South Africa, and Australia, Helana Mckenzie was deeply inspired by the modern and exotic designs from her culturally eclectic upbringing. In addition to her love of design, Helana grew up fascinated by her mother’s jewellery, always looking through her jewellery boxes while her mother got ready in the morning. Helana’s love for art and design brought her to a career in graphic design. However, her untapped creative energy kept pulling her back to a desire to create jewellery that was beautiful, timeless, and accessible. Little did she know, that a meditation retreat in Thailand would be the start of an incredible journey.
Helana Mckenzie Designs represented the beauty and strength in the journey only found in following something you love. Helana's passion for jewellery turned out to be a mission to design pieces that are at once both aspirational and attainable for women. A female connection that didn’t compromise on the quality and craftsmanship.
A piece that can be passed on from generation to generation.
11% OF EVERY PIECE SOLD WILL GO TO AGAPE INTL MISSIONS
Helana also wanted to be able to contribute to a cause that was near and dear to her heart. After watching a documentary about human trafficking a few years ago, it shook Helana to the core and she knew that this was a cause that she needs to help with. HMD will give 11% of every sale to Agape International Missions in Cambodia. AGM is focussed on stopping the cycle of sex trafficking and exploitation in Cambodia by preventing human trafficking and rescuing, restoring and reintegrating survivors. Even if you do not purchase anything from us, you can go directly to their site below and donate to a great cause, that not only rescues these girls, but most importantly focuses on the rehabilitation of them. Teaching them a craft so they can create their own income for their future.
