This month, in celebration of #pridemonth we are donating all proceeds from the sale of our Love is Love necklace by Strings for Hope to a local Charlotte organization called Time Out Youth Center. We’ve ordered a large batch of of these beautiful necklaces made from recycled guitar strings.

The creators of Strings for Hope provide second chances for survivors of addiction, domestic violence, and sex trafficking. Through employment in their program, survivors receive supplemental income and learn job skills while in transition. Each of the makers come directly from transitional housing facilities, and most of the strings are donated by musicians and music stores throughout the Nashville area.

Time Out Youth Center is a place where you can experience a sense of belonging and community. Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, a straight ally – or just don’t want to be labeled, you will be welcomed here. Some of our youth are out, some are partially out, and some are not out at all. Time Out Youth Center offers a safe space for all and fully respects the journey of each individual. While at Time Out Youth, you are not expected to be anyone or anything except who you are.If you are interested in supporting this organization, visit their IG page and click the link in their bio.

By purchasing this necklace (, not only are you receiving a gorgeous piece of handmade art, but the ripple effect of your purchase cannot be measured. Know better. Do better. Make a difference. #purposefulshopping #everypurchasematters
