"Perhaps the butterfly is proof that you can go through a great deal of darkness yet become something beautiful." - Anonymous
We created this special give-back cuff in collaboration with our non-profit partner, End Slavery Tennessee (ESTN). The mission of ESTN is to promote healing of human trafficking survivors and strategically confront slavery in Tennessee. When you purchase a Beauty from Darkness cuff, you're not only providing survivors economic empowerment through meaningful work - you're also raising funds for ESTN with a 10% direct give-back on all sales.
Bracelets bend to individual wrist size.
Cuffs are 1/4 inch wide and 6 inches long, and are available in aluminum, brass or copper.
The BRANDED Collective works with survivors of human trafficking from Nashville-based non-profit End Slavery Tennessee. BRANDED is an economic empowerment jobs program where the women handcraft the jewelry collection.
Many victims of human trafficking are BRANDED; their captors physically mark them with a number or symbol. The process is often violent: a forced tattoo, a burn or knife cut. The BRANDED Collective stands against this brutal practice. Each BRANDED item is stamped with an initial and a number. The initial belongs to the survivor who made your cuff. You can read her story on our website. The number is your unique number in the Collective. You can register this number and send a Message of Hope to our survivors.
