Gift to Empower: Day 8 – Urchin Girl Earrings

gift to empower

This holiday season, artist Yvonne Yao, founder of YVIE, has chosen to create unique designs for “Gift to Empower”, 24 days of unique one-of-a-kind daily designs for a cause. From December 1 – 24, 50 percent of all proceeds from Gift To Empower will be donated to Humanity Unified International, a charitable organization dedicated to lifting vulnerable populations out of poverty through education, food security programs and economic opportunities. The proceeds will be invested into a women’s farming cooperative project in Rwanda that will provide health, rights and business education along with all the tools, training and inputs necessary for 100 smallholder farmers to rise above poverty.

Day 8 – Urchin Girl Earrings

Yao’s inspiration for this piece…

I love collecting seashells by the seashore–my most prized collectables as a little girl were complete sand dollars and urchin shells.  These earrings are inspired by the radial patterns of their counterparts.   Crafted from sterling silver wire, black faceted spinel, and ocean jasper…wear your inner urchin girl with an “all-grown-up” style.

Dimensions: 1 ½” (h) x 1 3/8” (w)

Metals: sterling silver
