"Delphine" $45 acme1225
Today I am merging two of my favorite obsessions....this blog and my line of jewelry.
I started acme1225 to satisfy my need for tough one-of-a-kind pieces that are also elegant. To achieve that goal I use black and gunmetal safety pins and pair them with faceted Czech glass, Tibetan silver, glass pearl and wooden beads to create conversation-inducing bracelets.
The origin of the safety pin bracelet can be traced to a group of craftspeople from South Africa named the Inkwenkwezi, who are known for taking items that others consider to be trash and creating things of beauty such as: jewelry, baskets and purses.

A portion of each sale is donated to the Galkayo Education Center for Peace and Development (GECPD) - a program that provides educational opportunities for young girls and job training for women in Somalia - to help pay for hygiene products for girls so they don't have to miss school several days a month. You can read more about GECPD here at the website Jezebel.
