Eden's Courageous Heart Mother's Day Gift Box is inspired by the amazing story of Mei Mei.
At the end of her long journey across the border, Mei Mei expected to start her new factory job. Instead, she was locked in a small house and forced to marry a man with severe mental illness.
As if life couldn't get worse for her, she disappointed her in-laws by having a daughter rather than the expected son. When we met her, Mei Mei had been picked up by local authorities, separated from her child, and served months in jail on immigration violations.
Stories like Mei Mei’s inspired our awareness training for at-risk communities and officials. Mei Mei is now free from sexual slavery and has been working for Eden for a few years now. She is grateful for her new life but still hopes to be reunited with her daughter one day. Mei Mei’s courage continues to inspire those around her.
The Courageous Heart Collection was created in honor of her daughter. Mei Mei hopes the miniature heart serves as an invitation for both mother and daughter to live out courageous love.

The national flower of Myanmar, the Padauk, is depicted surrounded in the embrace of Australian native bush flora, including the Kangaroo Paw and the Flowering Gum.

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.
CARING FOR STERLING SILVER JEWELRY
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.
CARING FOR GOLD PLATED STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY OR SILVER PLATED JEWELRY
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.
CARING FOR BRASS JEWELRY
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.
CARING FOR STAINLESS STEEL JEWELRY
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.
