About Us and our journey

Bendi’s =  Ben + Cyndi

Bendi’s is a husband and wife team from the beautiful hills of West Virginia.  Cyndi started making jewelry in 2009 with a small tool kit, a few supplies, and a “how-to” book on wire jewelry. As her talent advanced, friends and co-workers began to express interest in purchasing her jewelry.  Ben’s Fibromyalgia made it impossible for him to work full time outside the home in 2010, and Bendi’s was born.

The couple began working with semi-precious gemstones.  After experiencing the benefits of magnetic hematite for Cyndi’s Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Ben’s arthritis, they wanted to pass those benefits along to their customers. They began focusing primarily on magnetic bracelets and anklets using the magnetic hematite stone and incorporating beautiful semi-precious gemstones and finishing each one off with a powerful magnetic closure. Their number one goal is making high quality, handcrafted, therapeutic jewelry at a reasonable price. 

Ben and Cyndi moved from West Virginia to Maysville, North Carolina in 2012 and now call it their home along the tranquil Crystal Coast.  Cyndi’s passion for making earrings increased and in 2013 she expanded their business to include her fun, wearable art using featherlight aluminum wire.  And new for 2015 Cyndi has added a hand-painted jewelry line using a unique marbling paint technique. Bendi’s jewelry is available in 18 gift shops throughout North and South Carolina and Georgia, and they are still adding new retailers. You can also find them at the New Bern Farmers Market in historic downtown New Bern, NC on most Saturdays throughout the year (hours 8am-2pm), and at Surf City Summer Market at Soundside Park in Surf City, NC on Tuesdays through mid-September (hours 9am-2pm),and at various Arts and Crafts Shows and Festivals along the NC coast.
