Well, we are living in strange times, that is for sure. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that we would have lockdown measures and be isolating to stop the spread of a Pandemic.
At this time I feel compelled to do something within my jewellery practice that gives back. Throughout the year I choose various charities that align with my brands values, and normally the focus is on the environment.
During this time of COVID 19 there is so much need out there, so I've chosen FOODBANK as an extremely worthy cause that could use some extra funds, no matter how small.
I've had so much fun designing a small break out collection with lovely etched brass that I had in my studio and always wanted to do something with. It's a little bit different to what I normally do, and will only be available for a few months.
"The UNITY collection is made to inspire connections between us at this time, even though we are all living apart"
Patterned brass and sterling silver are combined to create two tone mixed metal jewellery symbolising the moments of joy we are looking for in our daily lives.
Each piece is unique. As they are made by hand, there will be some variation in the brass pattern design.
The pieces in this collection are priced on a sliding scale to make them accessible and affordable, so you get a little piece of handmade Australian jewellery love!
You get to choose to pay what you are able during this difficult time. I'm looking forward to making your special piece to gift yourself or a loved one as an everyday reminder of our togetherness, even though we are apart. You can spread the word by using #lockdownlove
10% of all sales in this collection are being donated to FOODBANK in Western Australia (15%-25% if you pay more)
Foodbank provides food and groceries to over 400 registered charities that provide emergency food assistance to people in need.
You can donate directly here also.
