The Pink Ink Fund is a non-profit that helps breast cancer survivors with medical tattooing reconstruction needs. Pink Ink offers these patients a full spectrum of options on breast, nipple, and areola tattooing following mastectomies.
Trades of Hope is currently offering four exclusive, limited edition jewelry pieces that will support women affected by breast cancer.
10% of the net proceeds from these four products will go directly to the Pink Ink Fund.
Mastectomy surgery saves lives, of course, but it can leave the breast cancer survivor without her natural nipple.
There are tattoo artists specialized in reconstructive tattoos who are able to create natural looking nipple and areola repigmentation and they can also create tattoos that cover surgery scars.
These artists are more affordable than hospitals are, and their work is higher quality.
This beaded beauty is the Triumph bracelet. It is crafted from baby pink clay beads, cream colored paper beads and a heart pendant. This bracelet is feminine and sweet.
The paper beads are made from cereal boxes, and what I love about these particular beads is how each one is unique. Sometimes you can make out the letters from a box of your favorite cereal!
The Triumph bracelet was crafted in Haiti. The artisans who crafted this bracelet are part of an “un-orphanage.” There are almost 500,000 orphans in Haiti, given up by their parents not because they are unwanted, but because their parents are too poor to feed their children. The artisan parents who made this bracelet are creating products as a sustainable business and able to keep their babies. Like all Trades of Hope artisans, they are paid 100% of their asking wages.
The Triumph bracelet retails for $26.00.
The Defender bracelet is a 9 inch long leather cuff stitched with pink thread. It is a gorgeous show of support to breast cancer survivors.
The artisans in this group from Haiti are not only learning to craft jewelry, but also how to read and write in order to ultimately run their own business.
These artisans are not just changing their own lives through the sales of these products, they are changing their community!
The Defender bracelet retails for $28.
The Conqueror bracelet is another stretch bracelet like the Triumph.
The Haitian clay beads are a lovely coral-y pink and the metal is recycled aluminum with an engraved BRAVE charm.
The Conqueror bracelet is crafted by the same artisan group as the Triumph bracelet and earrings.
Retails for $26.00.
The Triumph earrings match the Triumph bracelet perfectly.
They are handcrafted from recycled cereal boxes beads and Haitian clay beads in shades of pink and white.
These earrings have a 2 inch drop.
The Triumph earrings retail for $24.
This special line will be available while supplies last.
