The collaborative collection is designed to fund grassroots organizations in the pursuit of racial justice and equity. Proceeds will directly support college funds for BIPOC student activists Delanie Seals and Izzy Miller. 


Seattle, WA / February 1, 2021 - In the immediate aftermath of George Floyd’s death in May of 2020, long time friends and business associates Akiko Waters of The Cura Co. and Suzanne Vetillart of Boma Jewelry, knew it was time to use their business platforms to dismantle systems of racism and redistribute wealth. 

Six months later, the duo has released their first gender inclusive sustainable jewelry collection designed to recognize and redistribute funding for community organizations in support of Black lives. 100% of the profits from the capsule collection will support the Black College Matters fund by Save Your VI, a  non-profit organization dedicated to advocacy for Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Specifically, proceeds from “This Matters” will support the college education of BIPOC activists Delanie Seals and Izzy Miller.


Izzy and Delanie madenational  headlines last spring when they fought to change a discriminatory school policy barring African head-wraps from being worn at school.These courageous young women led a grassroots campaign that got them suspended from school for wanting to express their cultural heritage. Eventually, they won the right for all students to wear cultural headwraps at school to ensureall BIPOC attend schools free from discrimination and harassment, as Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 guarantees. In addition, Izzy and Delanie organized multiple Black Lives Matter protests in their community and continue to urge their city council in Byng, OK to designate Juneteenth as a paid holiday.  Cura Co. & Boma are honored to support these remarkable young leaders pursue the education they deserve. 

The collection includes a BLK Power Pendant featuring a raised fist, a “Say Their Names” slogan necklace, and a raised fist “Power Signet” ring. All items are available in sterling silver and Brass. “This Matters” is available for purchase exclusively throughCura Co. andBoma Jewelry for a limited-time only. Prices start at $50 for pendant necklaces and range up to $130 for signet rings.

I know I’m not alone in my exhaustion of the social media game; the hype, the drama, it’s real. But there's also undeniable magic in tech algorithms. And as a small business occasionally the magic comes in discovering a talent or a partner who not only aligns with your values and vision, but also helps you in ways you didn't know you needed.  Which is exactly what happened when we discovered Robyn from ECHO+SCRIBE. It was the summer of 2021 and I was exhausted to put it mildly.  My endless to do list and general weight of the world was seriously in my way and suddenly Robyn showed up. She promptly took some of the weight away, sprinkled her words smithing gifts and her energetic light on Cura really in the nick of time.

Laura, not only our marketing manager, but our resident kundalini yogi & breathwork expert, shares some Fall mantras and self-care moon notes, warm weather notwithstanding.
