BLACK LIVES MATTER - Toronto Chapter
These gorgeous hand earrings are handmade in my home studio in Ottawa, Ontario and made from polymer clay. They are lightweight and measure approximately 2.75 inches in length (with the drop) and approximately 1.25 inches at their widest. Incredibly light-weight and stylish and are currently available in 4 colours: Black, Light Nude, Light Brown and Brown.
The studs and hardware are hypoallergenic surgical stainless steel.
**Please note that these items are made-to-order and will ship approximately 3-7 days after production is completed! You will receive confirmation once they've shipped! Due to the ongoing postal delays in both Canada & the U.S, I can not guarantee delivery times, and am not liable for border delays or any potential customs or duties.**
Due to my multiple jobs, I can't physically be present to protest. This is one of the ways I am attempting to show up. I acknowledge that my white privilege has afforded me the opportunity to be a small business owner and stand before my customer base and offer my products and services and it allows me to have this platform to crowd-source donations.
After this week is over, going forward, I will be allocating funds each month to be donated at the end of each business quarter to black-centric non-profit organizations as well as Canadian organizations which address and advocate for mental health and women's crisis centers.
I already have a list started but suggestions are always welcome.
