I have the extreme pleasure of introducing a little collaboration I'm running with Liberty United, one of the coolest art initiatives I've come across in a while.
Liberty United strives to reduce the impact of gun violence in the United States by not only taking firearms off the streets, but also transforming the metals obtained from guns and bullets into incredible pieces of jewelry. Each piece is made by hand in the USA and each bears the unique serial numbers of the decommissioned weapons used to manufacture each piece.
Both are wonderfully executed collaborations; Crangi's pieces are unisex and raw, while Love's collection bears her signature flavor of mysterious beauty and ancient symbolism. Her Aeternum cuff and Cage cuff were my two favorites; with the Aeternum bearing two hands holding a heart, wrapped around the wrist with laurel leaves and a resting snake: all symbols of peace, while the cage cuffs are made from gunmetals, brass and silver, and then inlaid with Obsidian and Turquoise.
I'm a minimalist when it comes to jewels these days, so I'm happy to announce that I'm giving away one of Pamela x Liberty's exquisite Obsidian Cage Cuffs for one of y'all to enjoy and help spread the word to help end gun violence.
Go ahead and follow the instructions on this here giveaway, you can even come back and tweet whatever message you like for extra points (as long as you include @LibertyUTD in the tweet)
