After my last post, Ponytail Exposes Hearing Aids to the World, a reader recommended a company that makes jewelry for hearing aids. I was even more captivated after learning that this company is the brainchild of a 12-year-old girl with hearing loss.
I fell in love with Hayleigh’s Cherished Charms after visiting the Web site. Not only does Hayleigh design and sell these beautiful charms for hearing aids, but she works with her two sisters and mom to design earrings and bracelets for everyone.
So I ordered my first pair of hearing aid charms. I’m proud to show them off, along with my hearing aids…
What inspired Hayleigh to design her hearing aid jewelry?
“When I was little and attended a school for hard of hearing and deaf children, I noticed that a lot of kids tried to hide their hearing aids behind their hair,” she shares on her Web site. “I wanted to make my hearing aids shine and be fancy and proud of my hearing aids.”
