As vegans, we love to wear our beliefs on the outside.  We adore vegan apparel and many of us have vegan tattoos.  Right now, the Vegan FTA team are loving Tines for Change jewelry for both men and women, made from something simple yet incredibly symbolic for all vegans – the table fork. Founder and designer Heather Wynn Millican says, 

‘A lot of people don’t think twice about this humble utensil, but when I pick one up, I am reminded that we have a choice to be kind. To me, it represents a promise to do better. We make choices each day about what is at the end of our forks. It can be a symbol of pain or we can choose to nourish not only our bodies but our hearts and minds. Tines for Change wares are created from sterling silver forks that have been pawned for their alloy. Each piece is handmade with care and no two are alike. The tines are cut, stamped, forged, and given new purpose. Tines for Change wares are meant to spark conversation and enable the wearer to share the truth behind what it means to live a truly compassionate life’.

All of Heather’s beautiful range is available to view and purchase from the Tines for Change website. Part of the proceeds from each sale is given to Animal Activist groups and individuals who share Heather’s love of animals and dedicate their time to advocating for their freedom.  The hardest part, is choosing which one we want to get first!
