This small box started as a seed of an idea that has evolved with the events unfolding this year. Its original intention was to uplift and brighten someone’s day while supporting local makers whose businesses lean heavily on the art festivals that have been canceled this year due to Covid-19.
Since then, I have decided I will no longer stand silently by and watch the racial inequities in my communities. The box has grown into a way to donate to two organizations that support and enrich the people of color in the communities that are close to my heart.
100% of the profits will be sent to:
We Wield the Hammer “exists to identify, train, track and support young women of African descent who might not otherwise choose a career as a metalsmith, offering an opportunity for artistic equity, economic empowerment and access to a vocation which is, worldwide, traditionally unavailable to women.” I am excited to support this beautiful organization in their efforts to include the creativity of women of color in the design and production of jewelry.
The second organization is my local YWCA, who is standing by their mission to eliminate racism and empower women, creating an environment for positive change in my hometown.
Whats in the box:
A selection of surprise items including a jewelry tray beautifully crafted in resin by Sarah & Emily Sweet Escape, a delightfully chic wall hanging or centerpiece with felt flowers created by Jam Flow Gems and a set of earrings and necklace that will compliment any summer outfit from yours truly! Jewelry will be crafted in yellow/ rose gold filled, or sterling silver and may or may not contain a semi-precious gemstone. Each piece is unique, and no two boxes will be the same!
Approximate full retail value $150!
