"Dear Stacee,
   I can't say thank you enough for such an amazing experience last night! I am blown away by how engaged and enthusiastic our kids were. Hilary andn Christine were so patient and supportive – truly gifted with kids. And the kids all walked away with such beautiful and unique creations.
   Thanks so much to each of you for providing such an incredible opportunity for our kids to be creative and discover their unique gifts and passions."
-Debbie Wilber, Hamilton Family Center
 

FUND OUR CLASSES WITH NON-PROFITS

Dagonfly Designs was founded on the basis of consciousness and expressing individuality. Recognizing the need for arts education for all children, artist Stacee Gillelen launched Dragonfly Designs in 2005. Our goals are to encourage the art of jewelry making, teach financial literacy and entreprneurial skills, encourage creativity, and provide sense of accomplishment to children of all socio-economic circumstances so that creative expression can also be fostered in those whose parents cannot afford high cost afterschool programs.

By partnering with non-profits in the communities that we serve, Dragonfly Designs seeks to bring an ancient form of art, the tactile and creative activity of jewelry-making, into the classrooms of these very children. Our vision is to empower children through art-based education to foster the skill sets that effect positive change in themselves and in their communities.

Dragonfly Designs became a B Corp because we want to provide a certified way of ensuring our clients and nonprofit partners that we are a socially responsible company; working for the good of all that we touch including our employees.
