I Am Enough Cuff

$38.00

Social Impact: BRANDED Collective provides job training and employment to survivors of human trafficking in Nashville. Many victims of human trafficking are BRANDED; their captors physically mark them with a number or symbol. The BRANDED Collective stands against this brutal practice. Each BRANDED item is stamped with an initial and a number. The initial belongs to the survivor who made your cuff. You can read her story on our website. The number is your unique number in the Collective. You can register this number and send a Message of Hope to our survivors. View all BRANDED Collective jewelry here. 

Product Description: This phrase was picked by our survivors as a reminder to you that you are special. These three simple words have helped them get through some very dark days, helped them combat the lies that they were not enough. May we all remember that we are in fact worthy, we all have great value, and we truly are ENOUGH. Bracelets bend to individual wrist size. Cuffs are 1/4 inch wide and 6 inches long, and are available in aluminum, brass or copper.
