The Raven + Lily Africa Collection is a beautiful project inside and out. Raven + Lily, founded by Kirsten Dickerson and Sophia Lin, is an accessories brand that repurposes bullet casings and recycled metals into fashionable pieces of jewelry. By using design partnership, the company creates socially responsible and sustainable projects.

This jewelry is crafted by HIV-positive women in Ethiopia who have partnered with Raven and Lily. These marginalized women receive more than just economic benefits of the project. The proceeds of the items sold go to funding healthcare and literacy programs for the women and children. The women involved become empowered and provide to the greater community. The positive power of purchasing one of these products is priceless.
