This minimal, dainty necklace is a tribute to the artist. Hammered into the shape of an artist's palette each of these necklaces is one-of-a-kind. This elegant necklace will layer well with many other necklaces in our jewelry collection.

MULXIPLY is creating jobs in Nepal since 2012 to help eliminate the exploitation of at-risk people that could end up trafficked to India. As they’ve broadened their work there, they are ever more committed to helping stabilize the economy in Nepal by creating dignified jobs. Employment and education are the most effective tools in preventing human trafficking, which was the founder’s “why” for starting MULXIPLY.
MULXIPLY’S business started with the mission to employ women since they are most at risk for being trafficked into sexual slavery. However, they later realized that there was a need to employ men as well. Men are tricked or pressured into taking what appear to be “good construction jobs” but end up being indentured slaves. Many of these men are away from their families for months at a time, some of them return only in caskets. Back in Nepal, entire villages have seen the population dwindle to nothing but women, children and old men. Societies are undermined and suddenly women and children are far more at-risk than they were before.
Learning of this issue, spurred them to figure out ways to create projects that would employ men as well. Their entire jewelry collection and gift boxes are made by a group of metal-workers, all of them are young men.
