Eden Outreach carries hope into the trafficking hubs of Asia. We know that it only takes a small spark of hope to ignite courage. We speak the truth - that a new, brighter future is possible and support is available if they dare to dream.
This message gave Yuan Yuan the courage and strength to escape the captors who had beaten her into submission for years. It’s the hope that grows in her heart as she heals at Eden from her physical and mental scars. It’s the power to overcome the early abuse that diminished her self-worth, and instead grow in confidence every day.
This collection uses the imagery of salt and light as a metaphor. It speaks of the hope that is created when we stand together and commit to continue to bring love and empowerment to women like Yuan Yuan who are trapped in the trafficking hubs of Asia.
Each of us can bring light into dark places by speaking up for those who don’t have a voice and working harder than ever before toward a world where no one is bought or sold. We hope you will wear the Salt & Light Collection as a reminder that even the tiniest pinprick of light can overcome the darkest places.
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.
