It was such fun design-geeking out in The Studio @ Abroad Modern with Sadhna Gupta Brown and her treasure trove of Indian gems -- the garnets are vintage, salvaged from her mother's old necklace! These super wearable, layer-able necklaces are a sneak peek of "Artem Abroad," our forthcoming world-architecture inspired line of jewelry.
- Gold-fill bar link chain; Gold-fill lobster claw clasp
- Genuine gems and precious stones
- 16" long (sits at clavicle)
- Handmade in Cambridge, MA
This is special because...
Artem was founded in 2018 by Abroad Modern resident Architect and jewelry designer Sadhna Gupta Brown. Sadhna's unique, architectural designs are ethically handcrafted in the Kolkata jewelry studios of Her Future Coalition, a nonprofit creating powerful and positive change in the lives of Indian and Nepali survivors of gender violence and girls at the highest risk, providing education, vocational training, safe shelter and supportive community.
The organization's jewelry program gives women the opportunity to learn a profession and support themselves independently. Her Future jewelers are breaking gender barriers, becoming some of South Asia’s first women goldsmiths, and earning wages comparable to a college graduate.
10% of all Artem purchases benefit Her Future Coalition.
