    Globally, there are an estimated 40.3 million people trapped in modern slavery.* Thiri used to be one of them. She was sold and trafficked into a foreign country at 12. Although this statistic is huge, we know that small acts can have a big impact.

    In her three years trapped in sexual slavery, Thiri was sold to over 20 men per day. That’s over 16,000 men! Thiri was rescued and is now receiving both trauma counseling and vocational training at Eden.

    Thiri said that before arriving at Eden, her heartfelt as though it was shattered into thousands of pieces. Through the love she now receives at Eden, she feels as though her heart is being sewn back together.

    This jewelry collection was inspired by her story. Each piece is delicately hand-sewn together into a beautiful tapestry, representing the inspiring journey of restoration that these women walk—from hopelessness and darkness into light and self-worth. Your purchase helps make this possible.

    Properly caring for your Eden Jewelry will ensure a longer wear life. Follow these simple guidelines, and you can enjoy your jewelry for years to come. Avoid wet environments. Do not wear into the shower or store in humid places. Apply lotions, makeup, hairspray, and perfume before putting on your jewelry. Avoid contact with household cleaning products.


    Sterling silver jewellery is marked with a 925 stamp. Polish sterling silver pieces with a jewelry polishing cloth. If more attention is needed, immerse in a solution of warm water and mild dishwashing liquid and gently hand wash. A soft toothbrush can also be used for more abrasive cleaning when needed. Thoroughly rinse and completely dry the silver before storing, as moisture contributes to tarnishing. Never clean your jewelry in bleach. If the jewelry contains gemstones or pearls, do not submerge the entire piece into the water. Instead, use a cotton swab with mild dishwashing liquid to wash only the silver.

    Note: These instructions are not for silver plated items.
    Please see the next section for plated items.


    To clean your gold plated jewelry at home, use a non-abrasive jewelry cleaner that is safe for plated parts or a mild soap and water. Use a soft cloth to clean the item carefully. After cleaning, rinse with lukewarm water and allow it to dry completely.
    Buffing your plated jewelry with a soft cloth is an effective and inexpensive way to keep your pieces lustrous.

    Note: Do not use a jewelry polishing cloth, as this can damage the finish.


    To return brass to its original shine, make a paste of baking soda, water, and lemon juice and gently rub it onto the piece with a soft cloth. Wash the mixture off using running water, then dry and buff with a clean cloth.


    To clean stainless steel jewelry, pour warm water into a small bowl, and add mild dish washing soap. Dip a soft, lint-free cloth into the soapy water, and gently wipe the stainless steel jewelry with the damp cloth until the piece is clean. When cleaning it, rub the item along its polish lines. Wipe remaining soap off jewelry using a moist cloth dipped in clean water. Dry jewelry well with a clean towel, and then leave to air dry. After it is clean, a jewelry polishing cloth can be used to shine it.


    To clean beaded or braided jewelry, use a soft brush to apply a solution of warm water and mild soap.   If you are cleaning your jewelry in or near the sink, be sure to place a rubber mat or cloth over the drain to avoid losing any small pieces.
