Our Partners
Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

What do diamonds and paper beads have in common? Everything, if you’re speaking about the incredible partnership between BeadforLife and MJ Christensen Diamonds. 

MJ Christensen Diamonds is a high-end jeweler with two locations in Las Vegas, Nevada. Every fall for the past five years, MJ Christensen has hosted its “Runway for Life” event to benefit BeadforLife. The annual celebration, which features BeadforLife’s paper bead jewelry, shea products and tailored items, along with the latest fashion and African drumming and dancing, has raised more than $128,000 to benefit BeadforLife’s programs.

According to Cliff and Darlene Miller, the owners of MJ Christensen, “We love engaging with great causes and helping to expose guests to organizations like BeadforLife in an effort to inspire more love, more hope and joy to share with others.” As Cliff stated, “BeadforLife offers an ideal platform to share stories and educate our community on making a difference, which has always been a passion for MJ Christensen.

MJ Christensen is a long time family owned small business that takes great pride in educating the community not only about diamonds and fine jewelry but “more importantly, how these jewelry creations are symbols of relationships and the living impacts they have on people,” says Jennifer Miller of MJ Christensen.  Jennifer, who also is a volunteer community partner with BeadforLife, believes that BeadforLife jewelry, “symbolizes strength, determination, and the relationship women have with compassionate people all over the world.”

BeadforLife is incredibly thankful for MJ Christensen’s generosity, commitment and partnership over the last five years. Together, two organizations that sell beautiful jewelry have proven that passion and collaboration can make a difference both here in the US and half a world away in Uganda.

The 5th Annual Runway for Life Event is scheduled for Wednesday, November 12th, from 6-8pm at Emerald at Queensridge in Las Vegas, Nevada. To learn more about MJ Christensen Diamonds, visit www.mjchristensen.com.
