About Us

Our Values

Resistance Jewelry is a Black-owned business dedicated to family, feminism, and equality. Everything we do is centered around human rights, and a portion of the proceeds from all sales are donated to the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR). All races, religions, sexualities and genders are welcome here.

Our Jewelry

We aim to create lasting memories through distinctive custom pieces. Each item is hand-stamped to order in our Ottawa workshop, using high-quality metals. There may be subtle variations in depth and placement of the text - this is a feature of the hand-crafted nature of the pieces. Every piece of our jewelry is completely unique and created just for you.

Our Founder

Resistance Jewelry was born after I was inspired by many of the empowering slogans I read on signs displayed during the Women's March in January 2017. As the mother of two young boys, I want to help make the best world I can for them, and instill in them a passion for equality, justice, and protecting the rights of people who enjoy fewer privileges than they do.
