LA FORTALEZA FUNDRAISER HOOPS

$ 35.00

We had some materials left over from a production mistake and we this opportunity to raise money for something very important to us!  

THE JEWELRY: 

The earrings feature 1" silver-fill hoops and a brass abstract leaf shape. The overall length is 2.25". The shape is removable, so you have two earrings in one. 

THE FUNDRAISER: 

$25 from every sale of these earrings will be donated to Better Without Mercury. Which is a grass-roots effort to clean up a mercury-contaminated artisanal gold mine in Colombia. We have materials to make 40 pairs of these earrings, which could potentially raise $1000 towards their need of $65,000 to clean up their Mercury contaminated site. Please follow this link to watch the video

In 2017, after four decades of using mercury, the miners at Gualconda fully transitioned their gold ore processing away from mercury. Now, the only obstacle standing in the way of their mercury-free dream is the remediation of the original processing site.

We use recycled metals at Seaworthy, because mining can be a dangerous and toxic process. But, we also recognize that communities around the world rely on mining for their livelihood and therefore it is important to support their efforts to improve mining for the current and future generations. 

Achieving this at La Fortaleza will bring awareness and opportunity for future projects in other places around the world. 

Thank your for your support. 

Brass and sterling silver can oxidize over time. The slight hue can be removed using an all metal polishing cloth. Click here for more info on the metals we use and how to take care of them. 

Each order comes with a small polishing cloth.
