19FIFTYTHREE: 53 Tri Bracelet Set


19FIFTYTHREE has given me a great opportunity to connect and collaborate with other artists and businesses. After contracting as a Graphic Designer for Aid Through Trade, I approached them with the idea of creating a set of their original Roll-Ons for 19FIFTYTHREE. We worked with three existing patterns and created a color-way that I feel perfectly represents my design aesthetic for this brand; gold, silver, and black. I consider these colors "my personal neutrals".

Aid Through Trade has mastered the Set of 3 Roll-On set, but I decided I wanted a set of 4! We added in an extra bracelet with the addition of brass beads. This brought more depth and texture to the set and it was beautiful! Aid Through Trade is a fair trade company who works with women who are artisans from Nepal. Each bracelet is made with glass beads and handcrafted with love. I am grateful for the opportunity and look forward to the future of 19FIFTYTHREE collaborations!
