THE FREEDOM COLLECTION
MURKANI X HAGAR
My name is Kiralee McNamara and I am the owner and designer of Murkani Jewellery.
I started my business 5 years ago with a dream to create a business and life that I loved. I also had another dream which I am very proud to finally announce is now coming to fruition. I wanted to support women who are in less fortunate situations than myself and give them the opportunity to live a life of freedom with control over their own destinies. Last year I started working with HAGAR AUSTRALIA to help women and children in danger of slavery and trafficking to live free and more rewarding lives.
WHAT IS HAGAR AUSTRALIA?
HAGAR is an international not-for-profit organisation that works to transform the lives of women and children who have been trafficked, enslaved or abused and to bring an end to these crimes. Their vision is to see communities free and healed from the trauma of human trafficking, slavery and abuse.
On March 8th 2019, International Women’s Day, we launched our first collection of necklaces called the FREEDOM COLLECTION.
$10 from every necklace purchased will go to supporting HAGAR’s vocational training programs in Cambodia.
On September 30th 2019, we introduced the matching earrings to our Freedom necklaces. For every pair sold, we will donate $5 to HAGAR Australia.
HOW YOUR PURCHASE MAKES A DIFFERENCE?
The inspiration for the range came from the approach that HAGAR takes with each client and its desire to see them safe, free and thriving. The range features 3 necklace designs:
The Hamsa hand
The Vintage Swallow symbolises freedom, both to make your own choices and financially.
The Lotus symbolises thriving, given the right conditions to grow.
