Ways of Change | Rom Bo Bead Ring
Posted by Audrey Finocchiaro
We love Ways of Change, a social enterprise started by two cousins who set out to make change. Co-founders Cara and Lauren created Ways of Change after a family trip to Bali. Through their travels, Cara and Lauren were inspired by the resilience of people who had faced conflict and migration. The two combined their interest of fashion and their drive to help others and formed Ways of Change.
Ways of Change empowers refugees to create jewelry using their traditional skills. Where possible, products are made from upcycled, organic, natural, cruelty-free, fairly traded and locally sourced materials. A portion of all Ways of Change’s profits are used to support community projects that focus on empowerment and sustainable living, contributing to the positive change that the communities they work with hope to see. Ways of Change hopes one day to be able to provide support to refugees as they become repatriated, (return to their country of origin) resettled (settled into a third country), or integrated into local communities (where they are currently living).
We are excited to be giving away their beautiful Rom Bo Bead Ring. It's made of 100% solid brass and comes in a handwoven drawstring bag. You can see the ring being made at the beginning of their video below.
We gave away the ring Rom Ro Bead Ring on social media the day this post went live. Congrats to our Instagram winner!
