These whimsical earrings are not only fun to wear - they're fun to make! The squares in each of the diamond-shaped dangle earrings are actually remnants from the BRANDED survivor ring collection.

 

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.

Earrings hang about 1.5 inches long.

Earring pendants are brass and copper.
Ear wires are yellow gold-filled and come with rubber safety backs.

Please note that slight variations in size and shape may occur. Each piece is uniquely, beautifully handcrafted!
