Emi Jewellery x Raye Zaragoza our SS18 jewellery collaboration in support of the Dakota Access Pipeline

We teamed up with Raye Zaragoza as part of our SS18 collection. Here, Raye wears our Rose Embroidered Collar Necklace.
Why did we reach our to Raye? She is...
"One of the most politically relevant artists in her genre" - Paste Magazine
Raye Zaragoza is an award-winning singer-songwriter & activist whose multinational heritage (Native American (O'odham), Mexican, Taiwanese and Japanese) deeply informs her music. 
Her viral protest song “In The River,” a response to the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline near the Standing Rock Sioux reservation in North Dakota, garnered half a million views, national media coverage, and a Global Music Award and Honesty Oscar. The song was named the #2 Protest Song by Paste Magazine in 2017, and one of the Top 25 Protest Songs of the 21st Century by WhatCulture.
Tracks from Raye’s debut album Fight For You have been featured on numerous Spotify playlists including ‘Feminist Friday,’ ‘Invisible No More,’ and Cyndi Lauper’s Protest Songs Playlist. Raye has captured hearts around the USA and Europe with her activist anthems, political commentaries, and love songs.
Raye stands up for what she believes in. She speaks out. She doesnt take any bullshit and she's a girl after our own hearts. She holds similar values to our brand and not just that, she's one helluva singer and has something genuine to say.

You can follow Raye on Youtube / Facebook & Instagram.
The Rose Embroidered Collar is online from our website.
