Francine LeFrak's Same Sky Social Jewelry at Stitch Southampton Today
Same Sky jewelry gives women a hand-up, not a handout.
From Rwanda to the USA, Same Sky creates jobs for women struggling to lift themselves out of extreme poverty, believing that real change happens with the dignity of work and the freedom of being self-sufficient.
A hand-blown glass bead bracelet in a rainbow of eye-catching colors has become Same Sky's signature jewelry product and symbol of women empowering women. Each bracelet is signed by its female artisan.
In a letter to supporters posted on Same Sky's website - www.samesky.com - Founder Francine LeFrak writes: "... Each piece of jewelry acts as a ribbon to the courageous artisan who made it. When you wear the jewelry, you are promoting change, alleviating poverty and empowering women living a world away. Not only will you look beautiful, you will also be connected to other likeminded people who want to change the world by the way they shop."
