Purple Heart c ompany directors, SJ and Matt
Purple Heart Design Ltd is a small business run by SJ and Matt, founded by SJ in 2022 after losing confidence in herself when she realised there were issues with her hearing. SJ is dependant on a combination of Earplugs for sensory processing issues and hearing aids for 30% hearing loss. 
" I wore earplugs to help with sensory processing but could never find them when I needed them and this left me feeling burnt out and over stimulated, I lost 3 pairs in a month! I later got diagnosed with hearing loss and needed to wear hearing aids to improve the quality of my hearing. I was afraid of the stigma associated with hearing aids and felt really let down about the styles which were available. My confidence was shot and I needed to find a solution to help me feel comfortable with wearing them as they were now part of my everyday life that I couldn't live without."
Matt is a musician and SJ introduced him to Loop Earplugs as a solution to protecting his hearing when at gigs, but also for dealing with his own sensory processing issues.
"Using Loops at gigs has been really beneficial to protecting my hearing. I've also used them in day to day as sometimes certain sounds are too much, like busy supermarkets or indoor play areas for the kids. The problem I had was I don't have pierced ears and didn't like the idea of having ear cuffs. I suggested that maybe we could design a necklace for the earplugs to attach to so I could easily get to them when needed instead of having the risk of misplacing them."
The couple soon set to work on designing functional, contemporary and beautiful jewellery that would give wearers the ability to accessorize their ear devices, feel confident, ensure their ears are protected when needed and keep their very precious devices safe from loss.
Each piece of jewellery is handmade by SJ and Matt with passion and created to be aimed to aid the individual without interference to their devices and is sold, worn and loved world wide!
