Time to Rise Necklace
Sterling silver chain and 1.1" pendant set with cubic zirconia. 18" in length.
The stunning ‘Time to Rise’ pieces are inspired by Hong Ans's story of empowerment. After a traumatic and abusive childhood and losing everything from the economic impacts of Covid-19, Hong An was tricked by a close friend and was trafficked to Myanmar. She was taken on a traumatic and terrifying 10-day journey through the mountains of Vietnam into Myanmar. Hong An faced betrayal, abuse and so much more. She and her sister relived the brutal abuse they grew up with but this time they couldn’t hide from their captives. However, through a kind-hearted Chinese woman, who was able to communicate with Hong An, she and her sister were able to miraculously escape and after a long process and being many weeks in prison, she was referred to Eden.
At Eden, she was empowered to rise up from the ashes of defeat and find strength, freedom, and hope. She was able to heal from her trauma and inspire the 92 rescued Vietnamese women that arrived after her, that there is hope in healing. She showed them that this is the time to rise. In the midst of chaos, fear, and corruption we must rise against injustice and use our voice to pierce through voices of oppression.
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.
