Jewelry Celebrating Faith, Inspiring Social Justice

Our Philosophy

Contemplative Rebellion was created with one important goal in mind: make the world a little bit better than we found it. We aim to break down the invisible barriers that separate faith, race, social status, and social justice.

Our intention is to make pieces of jewelry that not only look aesthetically pleasing but are each crafted with a particular meaning and message. Twenty percent of the profit from each item will be donated to the connected organizations whose work have been motivation for us. We hope that we are able to help them continue their work for such deserving causes.

Additionally, we are hoping to eventually begin employing local refugees to help assemble the jewelry in their homes. Many of them struggle with transportation, language barriers, and not being able to afford daycare for their little ones, leaving their options for employment very limited to say the least. Please take your time and enjoy the experience of discovering our site and hopefully finding some inspiration as well. 

Pause. Reflect. Be Contemplative
