Bergenfield’s Shayna Eizikovitz Designs Custom Bracelets and Keychains for Bat Mitzvah Project

Inspired by her upcoming February bat mitzvah, Shayna Eizikovitz of Bergenfield is helping children in need. Eizikovitz is selling her own handmade bracelets and keychains, and donating all proceeds to Beit Elazraki Emunah children’s home in Israel. Beit Elazraki Emunah helps at-risk Israeli children who lack a safe home environment.

Bracelet making, Eizikovitz said, had always been one of her favorite summer camp activities. With camp cancelled due to COVID-19, she watched numerous YouTube design videos to elevate her designs beyond the two basic stitches she had previously learned at camp. With practice, Eizikovitz felt confident to start her own bracelet and keychain-making initiative.

Beginning in early July, Eizikovitz created a line of bracelets and keychains in a variety of patterns and styles. Customers can specify the names, patterns and colors they want featured on their designs. Eizikovitz noted that one of her most popular pieces features a cute pineapple design.

Eizikovitz’s successful bat mitzvah project has already sold more than 15 pieces. She promotes her designs on Instagram to showcase her work and gain additional customers. Eizikovitz intends to continue her bracelet and keychain making project through February.

Eizikovitz described why Beit Elazraki Emunah was so special to her. “When I visited the children’s home,” she said, “it made me really happy seeing all the kids getting what they need.” When creating these accessories, she feels inspired, as “it is a great feeling knowing that I can help out others by doing something I enjoy.”
