Druzy wrap bracelets (Kamaria)

Kamaria

In 2016, cousins Ellie Clougherty and Kristen Malinowski found themselves sitting around the kitchen table making jewelry “as a form of therapy to aid in the recovery process after personal experiences with sexual assault.” After some formal education in jewelry-making and trips to Thailand and beyond, the cousins now distribute their creations through Kamaria, based in Vienna and Arlington. The company donates a portion of proceeds to their nonprofit, Restore Dignity, which provides scholarships and other support to survivors of “power-inequality trauma.” Among their most popular products are their druzy wrap bracelets.
