Rebel Nell’s product line starts by re-purposing graffiti, an abundant local resource here in the Motor City. The graffiti is collected after it has already fallen off of walls. Initially these scraps of graffiti look a little rough on the surface, just like many people’s first impression of Detroit. However, after it is taken through Rebel Nell's process, the beautiful layers underneath are revealed, just like the intricate layers that make up our city.
With some creative energy and hard work, the women of Rebel Nell turn that scrap of graffiti into a unique piece of wearable art.
Hand-made in Detroit by the women of Rebel Nell - an enterprise dedicated to the employment, education and empowerment of disadvantaged women with the goal of transitioning them to an independent life.
Materials: sterling silver, resin and re-purposed graffiti.
