A note from Sarah (aka Dawn's right hand)
you have been following our page in the last few years, you may have
seen a change in the jewelry being made. Like anyone creative can
attest, an evolution in your craft occurs and hopefully yields more
depth in the final product. This is most definitely the case with our
new REdeemed collection. Dawn began creating jewelry pieces because of
the mutual love she and her grandmother had for shiny things! Did you
know that her grandmother also owned an antique business called "Oldies
but Goodies"? What better way to honor someone you love then create
beautiful jewelry pieces from antiques? That is what Dawn is doing with
various silverware, leather belts and keys.
think our jewelry has changed for the better. For example, our hand
stamped items were previously made with new metal pieces. Now Dawn cuts
each disc from silver spoons to create our new mother's necklace. It is
the same idea as the old one but a deeper meaning of redemption
attached. Each disc is a new creation that has been fashioned by its
will also see that many of our items still reflect a love for Uganda
and a partnership with Women of Destiny. We incorporate paper beads
into almost every design you will purchase. Paper beads fit nicely into
the REdeeemed collection because each bead is rolled from old
calendars, political posters and just about any discarded paper the
women can find. No two beads will be alike either!
Fish is headed into our busy season of the year! We are incredibly
grateful for each of our customers and want to ensure all items are
accounted for in a timely manner. In the last few months, most of our
sales have come from social media. We are beyond excited for the
enthusiasm each new design receives but our new method will hopefully
give everyone a chance to purchase with more ease. No more scrolling
through posts to try and find that one jewelry piece you wanted. Each Friday,
we will fill our Etsy shop with weekly designs in limited or one of a
kind quantities. A preview of the items will be given through the week
so make sure and follow us on Facebook and Instagram! And don't forget
to check out our monthly featured fundraiser that will benefit various
non-profits by giving them a portion of our sales!
Slowly we will begin to phase out every item that isn't upcycled in nature. If there is something you've been eyeing, now is the time to snatch it up!
Our featured fundraiser for October benefits Austin Angels! Please check it out and make a purchase that will bless kids right here in Austin.
