Part of the Diversity and Inclusion Collection: “In Every Bead, Embracing the Beauty of Unity,” An exquisite eclectic collection of carved beads (Bone, Agathe, Jade, and Coral) from around the world, more than half vintage and of varying color- demonstrating that despite differences in age and provenance, diversity is beautiful. I genuinely ADORE this necklace and hesitate to put it up for sale. It is also imbued with symbolism and optimism: The two focal points are the butterfly, a symbol of hope, and the green carved jade, which brings good luck, promotes emotional well-being and protects against negative energies.
Native Americans have considered butterflies symbols of transformation, hope, and rebirth. In Chinese culture, the symbolism of butterflies evokes the qualities of freedom, earthly beauty, love, and the human soul.
The Story of this Collection: It intricately weaves a vibrant tapestry of inclusion through carefully chosen symbols. Each necklace serves as a powerful statement, declaring that beauty flourishes in the embrace of diversity across all its forms – be it gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, and more. Incorporating eclectic beads of diverse shapes, sizes, textures, and materials from various times and places, this collection profoundly celebrates humanity’s rich mosaic. It captures the essence of a more inclusive and tolerant world by symbolizing interconnectedness and the strength derived from unity.
We use recycled and vintage materials for their artistic merits and lower environmental impact whenever possible. We also love supporting artisans in the developing world, keeping traditions and handicrafts alive and transferred from generation to generation, and helping to support their families.
Note: We can adjust the weight and the length and make matching earrings for $25
