Our Story

Haven & Haddie has been owned and operated for eleven years by mother-daughter duo Mari Jost and Alex Bittner. Mari and Alex pride themselves on providing top-quality semi-precious freshwater pearls, crystal, beading supplies, and chains, all at an affordable price. Mari, Alex, and the rest of the Haven & Haddie team aim to provide a fun and helpful atmosphere to all beaders, young and old. We also offer custom memory jewelry to help you preserve life’s meaningful moments in a way that feels personal to you.

Family is what fuels our passion and inspiration, which is why we chose to name our store after Alex’s daughters, Haven and Hadley. They are the reason we strive to make our business more than just a bead store, more than just a local business, more than just a job. Our hope is that our jewelry helps you remember, celebrate, and connect with your given and chosen families.

Haven & Haddie Memory Jewelry: From Our Family To Yours

In December 2014, Mari's mother passed away. Donder, as she was affectionately called, was an avid gardener and had a great love of flowers. While Mari and Alex had already been experimenting with memory flowers, it was then that they started using different types of bezels and creating new jewelry styles. As Mother's Day was approaching, Alex made it her mission to create a jewelry piece from the flowers in Donder's own garden as a gift for her mom and sisters. From this heartfelt endeavor came our memory flower jewelry line. Once perfected, the line was then offered in our store. We now offer a large selection of memory items made from flowers, your loved one's handwriting, clothing, and much more!
