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 BRANDED's website. The number is your unique number in the Collective. You can register this number and send a Message of Hope to survivors.
Product Description: Bracelets bend to individual wrist size. Large cuffs are 1 and 3/4 inches wide and 6 inches long. Each piece contains unique markings and qualities along with your individual number. We hope you will see these “imperfections” as we do… the delightful charm of handmade.
Over time your brass and copper items may need some attention to remain shiny. If you do not like the patina aesthetic, we suggest the following natural polishing technique. Fill a bowl with lemon juice and add a dash of sea salt. Using a cotton ball or paper towel rub your cuff with the lemon juice and sea salt mix. Rinse your shiny new cuff with water and dry with a paper towel... oh the magic of a little lemon juice! Note for uncoated copper cuffs. If you notice skin discoloration, we recommend coating the back with clear nail polish.
