Small BRANDED Cuff
These are some powerful bracelets right here! They stack beautifully with all of our necklaces and support such an amazing organization.
Carefully handcrafted by our friends at BRANDED Collective using sheets of metal that have been hand-sanded, stamped, and polish. Dimensions are 0.5 inches wide and 6 inches long. Bracelets bend to individual wrist size.
Polishing Technique: Fill a bowl with lemon juice and add a dash of sea salt. Using a cotton ball or paper towel, rub your cuff with the lemon juice and sea salt mix. Rinse your shiny new cuff with water and dry with a paper towel.
About the Artisan Group:
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 design and 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 BRANDED's website. The number is your unique number in the Collective. You can register this number and send a Message of Hope to the survivors. Together BRANDED hopes to empower survivors of human trafficking to rise above the branding and the trauma they have been given. Together we can wear the story, share the story and change the story.
With each product you can expect slight variations as a part of the artisan-crafted charm.
