Su Su’s smile is contagious the day her family and Eden staff gather to celebrate her baby’s 100 day birthday. In that moment, the journey of faith that brought her here feels so much nearer than the day her suffering began.
At eleven, she left school for a factory job. However, she didn’t earn enough to support her family. So she was excited when her boss told her about a better job in China. The young girl trusted his promises but found herself living in the nightmare of being sold over the border as a bride. After being locked in a hotel room for days, she escaped. Anti-trafficking officials helped her return to Myanmar, where she learned she was pregnant at Eden.
Just like the night she hid under a tree to escape her husband’s family, Su Su knew this was another moment to change her story. She embraced counseling and started a job making jewelry.
We hope the Walk in Faith Collection inspires you to step out in faith and take action to change your story and those of trafficking victims like Su Su as you share their stories and seek justice.
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.
