Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin (PRWEB) September 10, 2013
Elkhart Lake, Wisconsin jewelry designer Kim Jakum, designer/owner, Metalmorphis Jewelry (http://www.metalmorphisjewelry.com), believes strongly in One World Foundation’s goals as defined by their mission statement, which reads, "One World Foundation strives to cultivate human unity by fostering harmony among people of all classes, ethnicities and religions and by empowering children to become active citizens of the world."
As a result, she was inspired to create her handcrafted "One World One People" Boho Wrap Bracelet, which features African blue opal beads and a custom designed, fine silver "one world, one people" medallion closure, featuring the foundation's tagline.
Jakum originally designed the "One World, One People" bracelet for inclusion in a gift bag prepared by The Artisan Group, a California-based, handcrafted artist promotions organization, to be auctioned off by One World Foundation in support of their Baan Unrak Weaving Project, which provides assistance to the Baan Unrak Children’s Home in Sangkhlaburi, Thailand.
As Kim began to learn more about One World Foundation and the Baan Unrak Weaving Project, she was inspired to reach out to Stephanie Drapeau, the Foundation’s Vice President, to learn what more she could do to support the project.
"After talking with Stephanie, we agreed that I would make the bracelet available for sale on my website and then donate to the Project 22% of the proceeds from each sale, which equates to $24.00 per bracelet," said Kim. "One World’s support of children’s education and welfare are so worthy; I’m happy to be able to help."
When asked how she came up with the "One World, One People" bracelet design, Kim noted that the charity’s focus on creating world peace and harmony among all peoples of the world inspired her to fashion a bracelet that would evoke a feeling of connection with the earth and its people.
"I wanted to create a bracelet with Boho flair that would have a rustic quality and celebrate the beauty of this earth we all share. I came upon the African Blue Opal beads and knew they would be perfect. No two beads are the same and the patterns and textures on each remind of little earths. They were ideal for this project. The custom-designed medallion closure keeps the One World Foundation message front and center."
"We are very excited to have Kim’s support with her beautiful bracelet," said Stephanie Drapeau. "It’s the individual actions of people like Kim that make a significant difference for the children at Baan Unrak. We are truly grateful."
