The Liberty Collection is a new body of work as a response to the COVID-19 crisis. It is an attempt by two local jewelry makers to help offset the impact in our local community by partnering with United Way of Greenville County to raise funds.
The Liberty Collection is designed in celebration of our community. Its focus is a stylized rendering of the Liberty Bridge – the most central and recognizable Greenville icon -- and a remarkable, beautiful piece of engineering. We chose this as we felt it was a perfect image that would appeal to our community and our joint love for the place we call home.
The Liberty Necklace is on an adjustable chain:
Wear at 16", 17" or 18" lengths depending on your neckline.
How exactly does it work?
We knew you’d want to know! We, Danielle and Katie of MAKE MADE jewelry, will fabricate your beautiful new pieces of jewelry, right here in downtown Greenville, and we won’t pay ourselves personally to do so. Our breakdown of your purchase will be as follows:
50% of all sales of the Liberty Collection will be funneled straight to the United Way of Greenville County to be used in their COVID-19 response
50% will cover our actual costs, including gold/silver costs, expendables used, processing fees, and a very small remaining portion will go toward our overhead and operating costs.
These pieces will be offered now, on a pre-order basis, in order to quickly shuffle funds to out to our local partner, United Way of Greenville, as quickly as we can pre-sell them.
We feel very strongly about our community and about this project, and we invite you to please head over to our blog post to read in depth about how we came up with this concept, and how exactly the funds will be divided.
