Kionii Foundation was founded in 2020 in response to the death of George Floyd who was murdered by former Minnesota Police Officers Derek Chauvin, Tou Thou, Thomas Kiernan Lane and J Alexander Kueng. Our aim is to fight against acts of violence and injustice, creating a space for Black creatives and focusing on Black joy and celebrations.
Kionii is a UK organisation whose mission is to extinguish white supremacy and build local power to intervene in violence inflicted on Black communities in the UK and around the world.
Galvanized by recent events, black jewellery business owners, Rochella and Lizzie, decided to use their creativity to help give back to social change initiatives and support the BLM movement. The Black Lives Matter necklace will be available to pre-order on the 1st August to coincide with Black Pound Day and the launch of the Kionii Foundation. All proceeds from the piece will be donated to charities and non-profit organisations that seek to empower the Black community.
‘We believe jewellery is much more than an accessory; its self-expression and how we communicate with the world’, Lizzie Loves, Co-Founder of Kionii Foundation.
