Marlborough based brand, Evolve Jewellery, has released a limited edition Paua Mosaic charm to raise funds for the communities hit by the devastating 7.8 earthquake of November 2016.
 
“The charm not only encompasses the beauty found within our New Zealand shores, the mosaic depicts togetherness, and perfectly illustrates the strong bond created between people in times of adversity and challenge.”
 
Profit from sales of the charm will go to causes in the affected areas. Evolve is reaching out to their social media community to discuss where the funds should go, and to raise awareness about what the region is going through.
 
“Communities up and down the coast, particularly Kaikoura, are going to be affected for quite some time. We have a real opportunity to help affected communities, by reaching out to our wonderful customers here and around the world who care greatly about New Zealand. In the first few days we have already raised over $3000. It is equally important to us that customers who support this cause have a say about what matters to them, and where they would like the funds raised to go.”
 
This isn’t the first time Evolve has answered the call to help. After the 2011 Christchurch Earthquake, Evolve, with help from their retailers and customers, raised $68,000. This was donated to the 2011 Red Cross Earthquake Appeal.
 
Known as New Zealand’s charm, Evolve have been designing inspired jewellery for almost a decade.
 
This beautiful Paua Mosaic charm can be purchased from evolve-jewellery.co.nz for $85, whilst stock lasts. Evolve encourages everyone to go to their Facebook page and join the discussion to decide where the money raised should go. Facebook.com/evolveNZ or visit www.evolve-jewellery.co.nz.
