Kelsie Sheren, a veteran of the Canadian Armed Forces, recently founded Her Wearables, a Vancouver-based jewellery business.
Sheren, 25, started the company in November of 2014 as a way to raise awareness about the struggles that Canadian veterans face. “The Canadian Forces has many soldiers come home who are suffering from PTSD and many other problems,” says Sheren. “[However,] the majority of the time, [these men and women] are set to the side due to a lack of funding by the government.”
As a result, Sheren sends a portion of all proceeds from Her Wearables to Wounded Warriors, a non-profit organization that seeks to help soldiers who gave been injured in active service. “This is my way to give back,” she says, “and I couldn’t be happier to have found a way to help others who are suffering.”
Her Wearables currently consists of four unique collections: the City Collection, the Stone Collection, the Free Collection and the Gunner Collection. As of now, the line is sold exclusively in British Columbia, but Sheren hopes to soon expand across Canada and the United States. For more information, visit her-wearables.com. CJ
