SeeMe – Large and Medium Rainbow Heart Necklace plus Macrame Heart Bracelets
These beautiful pieces are part of a special Rainbow collection by photographer Tamu McPherson for SeeMe and are seen here modelled by the lady herself. In response to the sexism, misogyny and challenges aimed at women’s reproductive rights by certain governments, SeeMe launched a campaign entitled “We are #MadeByAWoman” to honour mothers, motherhood and all women, which features the Rainbow collection.
Both hearts are silver plated and come on army chains, they are available in a variety of colours representing the unique appeal of the Rainbow collection. Each bracelet is silver plated brass with a hand woven macrame silk cord and comes in beautiful packaging ready to be gifted to your loved ones or to your beloved self.
Handmade in Tunisia.
Premium ethical jewellery brand SeeMe was founded by Caterina Occhio and provides women with a safe environment and secure work positions upon leaving women’s shelters in Tunisia. Catherine is a former development aid manager with more than 15 years experience in supporting employment and institutional reform and has worked extensively for the European Commission, various UN agencies and also spent a number of years specialising in the socio-economic integration of women. Catherine has also served as Secretary General of the SEED Foundation and also as EU Policy adviser for social inclusion for a new employment strategy in Tunisia.
All SeeMe hearts are handcrafted by women who have been victims of violence and the brand aims to bridge the the gap between luxury and fair trade. Through training SeeMe women learn the craft of jewellery making following ancient Tunisian techniques allowing them to preserve tradition whilst at the same time providing for their families. In addition to her role as CEO Catherine is also the main jewellery designer and ultimately responsible for the aesthetics of all designs. SeeMe strives to have a positive of influence on the established brands in the fashion world by supporting an ethical approach to their sourcing procedures. In recent times SeeMe has collaborated with high profile fashion brands such as Karl Lagerfeld for whom it created a beautiful capsule collection, as well as Tommy Hilfiger and Missoni on a Spring Summer collection.
In 2014 SeeMe created the #heartmovement which sees high profile fashion influencers become like brand ambassadors for the hear jewellery pieces. The hearts are at the core of all collections and act like links of a love chain to replace the chain of violence. Wear one. Give one. Support one. In 2016 SeeMe had the privilege of working with the UN and creating a special Orange Heart which was selected as the signatory piece for the 20th anniversary of the UN Trust Fund to End Violence against Women. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the sale of the Orange Heart jewellery went to benefit projects supported by grants form the UN Trust Fund.
By sparking a revolution in both the fashion and the fair trade worlds, SeeMe has successfully combined the two and made a product that feel good on the body and soul.
