Poipín Jewellery is a brand inspired by peace. Each and every piece has a natural element such as flowers, leaves, shells and other findings incorporated in them. I carefully select each item I use at former battlegrounds. These places are now peaceful. Many of these sites no longer even bear the scars of violence, they have returned to what they once were –from tranquil forests to lively cities and from windy beaches to picturesque towns. My jewellery symbolises that peace can return to war-torn-areas, and expresses a hope for a peaceful future.
This hope for peace is why 5% of profits go to Peace Direct, a charity helping people in war zones. To honour the natural elements that makes Poipín unique, 5% of profits go to a charity building gardens for children in hospices. This gives them a chance to enjoy nature despite being in hospice.
Each piece is handcrafted by me, using elements from nature, making every one completely unique. I use mainly recycled silver, and only ethical gemstones in my jewellery.
