    The Free Bird collection was designed by acclaimed North Carolina jeweler and designer Melissa Tyson for Made by Survivors.  Birds are the perfect metaphor for our survivors because they are at once so vulnerable and delicate, and incredibly strong.  Tiny birds fly thousands of miles in migration.  Our survivors too have a long journey ahead of them, as they rebuild shattered lives and gain the tools to rejoin society as strong, independent, capable women.  Our commitment is to walk beside them every step of the journey, and our job is not finished until they are permanently slavery-proofed, with education, economic empowerment, a strong identity and sense of self-worth, and knowledge of human rights and laws regarding slavery and the laws surrounding it.
