SHINE YOUR LIGHT
In creating the pieces, Laura parallels the light that is infused in the jewelry forms and names, like Sunbeam Hoops, with the light her clients shed on important topics like the environment.
As my clients grace the stage and screen, what they wear is seen by millions, raising awareness about the importance of sustainable fashion and shifting attention gradually towards brands creating new norms. Each of us have that power to make a difference.
Collaboration is essential to change. ARTICLE22 hits the mark on sustainability and ethical production because not only is their jewelry upcycled from war debris by rural artisans in Laos, it also contributes to Nobel Peace Prize Co-Laureate MAG (Mines Advisory Group) which works to clear the 80 million unexploded bombs left scarring the land.
