The Welcome Movement
Deeply touched by the current refugee crisis in Europe, Amarist Studio decided to get involved designing a Jewelry Line to trigger a global social movement to help the refugees.
Inspired by the razor wire recently installed along the borders of the South East european countries, they created a universal symbol with its spikes, a symbol of support for the war-displaced people around the world.
The proposed campaign thus presents thousands of little pieces of the original razor wire used at the border walls, polished, gold plated in 24K and reconverted into pins and pieces of trendy jewelry. In this way the Welcome Movement takes to the streets fragments of border in support of each individual who had to leave their home in search of a better future.
All proceeds of the Welcome Campaign are donated to the United Nations refugee agency, the UNHCR.
The aim of the Welcome initiative is to become global, creating a solidarity movement and a positive trend in speaking about refugees, bringing funds and awareness to the needs of survivors.
