Silpada partners with living beyond breast cancer

With You, For You

At Silpada, being a part of our community means being a part of a sisterhood of friends that supports, empowers and celebrates one another. We’re excited to come together with another community, our friends at Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC), that shares many of our same values. This month, 50% of proceeds from each item sold from our curated collection of 5 new pieces will be donated to LBBC.

Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s mission is to connect the 3.1 million people affected by breast cancer with trusted breast cancer information and outreach within a community of support. Not only is it a safe community to find information while trekking through very unknown territory but a community of women of all ages and backgrounds with their own unique story. 

Silpada & Living Beyond Breast Cancer

No two women or journeys are alike and we are stronger together—knowing this, we aim to create jewelry that connects people. With this in mind, we teamed up with LBBC to create a unique new piece for October. This led us to Kristin – wife, mother, teacher, breast cancer survivor & community-member of LBBC. Kristin designed an amazing new ring for Silpada that we are so excited about! Her design is inspired by her own personal story but it’s something that she hopes will bring comfort and a sense of support and belonging to everyone who wears it. 

Designer and Survivor, Kristin McHugh 

We spent the day with Kristin and learned about her journey & what this project means to her. After being diagnosed, Kristin found friendship, support and resources in the LBBC community. She shared how not knowing anyone her age who was also battling cancer felt lonely and isolating. Her amazing family and friends rallied around her in support, but she credits the resources and community that Living Beyond Breast Cancer provided as exactly what she was looking for.

As a former art instructor, designing the ring came natural to Kristin. She shared how the process served as a welcome outlet to channel her creativity & how moved she was to see the finished product in person for the first time. Brave Spirit Ring was inspired by the hope that it could give each owner a tangible representation of their personal story and serve as a representation of community. 

The Brave Spirit Ring, Coming Soon

QUOTE FROM KRISTIN MCHUGH:

The idea was to create something that could be worn by anyone. My hope is that the ring can become a tangible representation of the wearer’s own personal story. The Brave Spirit Ring itself is created out of silver and is meant to be an imperfect and organic band that comfortably wraps around the finger or thumb. The exterior of the outside surface of the band is scattered with abstract oxidized lines meant to symbolize the mental and physical scars from diagnosis and treatment.
