Mend On The Move Living The Light Necklace
Retainer ring washers from the famous Ford Mustang (donated by Ford) were used in the creation of this unique piece. It hangs from an adjustable ball chain 15" to 17" length. The secrecy and shame of abuse keep victims in darkness but bringing their stories to the light transforms them from victim to survivor.
Mend on the Move is a non-profit social enterprise that employs survivors of abuse in Metro Detroit. They create jewelry that provides them with an income while in recovery. The jewelry is made from salvaged auto parts and car seat leather interiors, symbolic of serving women locally in the "Motor City"
