I've designed this Peaceful Dove brooch to symbolise peace and freedom for asylum seekers and refugees currently in mandatory detention in Australian prisons. Profits from the sale of Peaceful Dove necklaces and brooches will be donated to The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre in Australia.

When you buy a Peaceful Dove, part of the profit covers the manufacturing and the rest will be donated to the ASRC.

The dove is cut from laminated bamboo and laser etched. The brooch measures approximately 4.5mm/ .25" thick, 6cm/ 2.3" wide and 4.3cm/ 1.75" tall.

A necklace is also available: https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/472475582/peaceful-dove-bamboo-necklace-profits-go?ref=listings_manager_grid

Australia currently has in place mandatory detention for "unlawful non-citizens", and many people classified as refugees are imprisoned in Australian and offshore detention centres. The prisons on Manus Island and Nauru in particular are home to human rights abuses, where refugees are subjected to beatings, racist slurs, and sexual assaults. A number of these refugees have died or been seriously injured in detention from assault, medical neglect, self harm and suicide. The Australian government claims that it has no responsibility for these people and their well-being because they are in the care of the Papua New Guinean and Nauruan governments, despite being funded by Australia to detain asylum seekers.

"We must not forget that the Government set up a system of deliberate abuse of and cruelty towards almost two thousand people in two detention centres who are simply looking for a safe place to rebuild their lives."

"The Australian Government must be held accountable for the many years of harm it has inflicted upon people seeking its protection, as well as shoulder its share of responsibility and treat people seeking asylum fairly."

- Anna Neistat from Amnesty International

I have designed this dove in order to raise money for the Asylum Seeker Resource Center, an independent human rights organisation dedicated to assist, advocate for and empower asylum seekers, and engage with the wider community in order to affect social change.

$40 can feed a family of 4 for a 2 weeks

Frequently asked questions about FancyLadyIndustries

I make bumbags in three sizes - kids, small adult and large adult. Please read the description closely for the dimensions of the bag and straps. If a strap is too long for you, I can shorten it (but I can't make it longer!) please let me know your waist measurement in the check out notes.

The necklace chains are designed for people with larger necks and shoulders first and foremost. Please read the description for the chain length. Should you require a shorter chain, please let me know how long you require it in the checkout notes so I can shorten it for you.

I don't refund upon change of mind or if the incorrect sizing was purchased, I'm afraid.
Unfortunately, I can not refund the cost of lost or undelivered shipped items.

Tracked International Shipping is expensive from Australia and most customers prefer the most economical shipping method so items are not sent with tracking. If you require tracking and would like to pay for extra shipping, please message me and I can arrange an updated shipping total.
