The blood & tears of survivors
The support of Conflict Women
Financial freedom & empowerment
At Conflict Women, Ltd. we have always been fascinated by jewelry and art, whether collecting street art in South Africa, purchasing paintings of Arabic calligraphy in Egypt, or buying wooden jewelry in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Our fascination meant that we spent endless hours traversing some of the world’s most interesting bazaars and markets, and visualizing how art could be used for social change.
In 2014, we founded the Butterfly Project, which sells jewelry and art, all designed and hand-crafted by survivors of domestic and sexual violence. Each piece is sold with the survivor’s anonymous story and a portion of proceeds is used to provide her with a monthly income and free retraining. We love jewelry, and hope that you will purchase one of our beautiful pieces that changes lives.
