I am a great admirer of Waris Dirie and the Desert Flower Foundation” – says Christian Pressel – “I have been supporting the foundation for a long time. Besides, Waris often wears our jewellery designs during her many public appearances, which are created by my designer, Liat Avital, who’s also in charge of the HAND for LUCK project “

“. . . I’m surprised to see how many people from all over the world order the HAND for LUCK. We get orders from Australia, the USA, Japan, Brazil, practically from all over the world!  Many celebrities also purchase this jewellery and take photos with it, because they find the “Save a Little Desert Flower” campaign very important. For 2015, we already have new ideas on how to support Waris and her Desert Flower Foundation in an even better way. So, if you want to order a “HAND for LUCK“ before Christmas, you should do it quickly, since in 2015 a new collection will come out.”
