About this producer:
Each piece of jewelry is inspired by the true story of a courageous woman and handmade by rescued women. The profits from each of your purchases directly benefit the women in a comprehensive program to reach, rescue, and restore trafficking victims. From day one, a woman entering the program earns a full-time wage making jewelry. The jewelry-making process itself is therapeutic. Creating pieces that carry stories of hope and courage into the world is empowering for survivors.
“Within the space of four years I lost my identity, lost my daughter, lost my dignity, lost my freedom and then was put in prison like a common criminal. I am just one; there are thousands and thousands of my sisters who are still being exploited. I am speaking on their behalf. Please, when you have the opportunity, help bring my sisters home. Fight for the rights of trafficking victims, for their freedom and dignity.” - Mei Mei
