Pieces With Purpose
Since day 1, we have always had the intention of putting money back into Indigenous Communities. Our main focus with these pieces is to raise money and awareness for ongoing issues that plague communities and infringe on basic rights to this day. Since we have started we have been able to extend that support to many communities and organizations. Here’s a look at what we have done since . .

November 2019 we announced our staple Sweetgrass Collection. All peices are made with three strands of sterling silver wire twisted ( not braided * ) to resemble the Indigenous medicine “Sweetgrass”. This beautiful handmade collection comes with a beautiful purpose so you can wear every piece proudly.
These rings are made to represent one of the Four Sacred Medicines - Sweetgrass.
For EVERY ring that is sold $10 will be donated to the @nwrct (Native Women’s Resource Center Toronto)

Four Direction Necklaces
In collaboration with Anice Jewellery, These necklaces were designed to represent the 4 Directions/Medicine Wheel Colours. 20% of each necklace sold will be donated to the Native Women’s Association of Canada.
The Native Women’s Association of Canada (NWAC) is founded on the collective goal to enhance, promote, and foster the social, economic, cultural and political well-being of First Nations, Métis and Inuit women. NWAC is an aggregate of thirteen Native women’s organizations from across Canada and was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1974. Much like a “Grandmother’s Lodge”, we as aunties, mothers, sisters, brothers and relatives collectively recognize, respect, promote, defend and enhance our Native ancestral laws, spiritual beliefs, language and traditions given to us by the Creator.
