I had a few friends and family members ask me to make some safety pin jewelry, as part of the safety pin movement.  (For those of you not in the know, wearing a safety pin is supposed to identify you as an ally to people in danger from hate crimes, including people of color, LGBTQ folks, immigrants, and Muslims.)  So these are a part of a fundraiser for the Souther Poverty Law Center.  I created a mix of 14 different brooches, with pewter charms, Swarovski crystal heart drops, and large safety pin brooches, in three themes 'Peace', 'Healing Hands', and 'Love'.

They are beautiful, and a great way to wear a safety pin without becoming a target yourself. I love the gold healing hands one.
