Imperfectly Perfect Jewelry

Imperfectly Perfect Jewelry is partnering with AFTD to help find a cure…

In 2016, two years after her mom was diagnosed with FTD in 2014, Wendy from Massachusetts started designing and making fashionable yet functional medical bracelets to help with communication issues common to the disease. After hearing and realizing her handcrafted work could benefit others, Imperfectly Perfect Jewelry was created. Wendy wanted her jewelry to benefit both FTD and AFTD, so she participated in AFTD’s 2017 With Love campaign and donated $5 for every piece of jewelry sold during the month of February. Orders quickly came in from across the country and at the end of the month, Wendy was able to donate $1,100 to the campaign!

Full of inspiration and passion, Wendy has decided to continue her partnership with AFTD! For every piece of jewelry sold on her website, Imperfectly Perfect Jewelry will donate $5 to AFTD to help the fight against FTD.
