Help Japan 'Sakura' necklace


These are our necklaces specially designed to help us raise money to send to Kesennuma, Nao's hometown.

So far, in Japan we having been raising 30% of online sales for the fund, and already have enough to equip his mum's school with stationary and computer! But alas they are using a temporary site because their school was washed away in the Tsunami.

So we are hoping to raise more monies by donating 100% of the sale price of each necklace.

They are hand stamped, the stamp was designed by us and created by an engraver who also made the stamp for the 50p for the Royal Mint! They are made of Sterling silver, and come either with a real black or white pearl for £78 or plain for £65. Length of chain can be selected too. They also come with their own Liberty Print pouch made by us!
I can't think of a better pressie to give someone to be honest, and I hope we can raise enough to get building underway. Pop over to our RUST shop and take a look if you have the time.  X

    I have been waiting to see what you came up with and I have ordered two. These are beautiful designs. I hope your mum in law manages to achieve all that she needs for a new school. My husband and daughter have just returned from travelling in Japan where they experienced some of the more recent horrors of earthquakes.They witnessed very young children terrified with the earths movements. The Japanese stoicism is heartbreaking but I hope that my teeny purchase makes a wee bit of difference.

    Goodness, these are beautiful and have such a lovely meaning. I checked out the website but there are none shown. I assume you sold them all?
