ABOUT THE FOUNDER
Hi, I'm Kelsi Sheren, the creator of Brass & Unity. I have had a very interesting journey on my way to creating B&U. Fresh out of college I joined the Military, had a 4 year stint in the Canadian Forces including a tour in Afghanistan during the summer of 2009. After serving on the front lines, I was diagnosed with severe PTSD and was forced to return home. Thankfully I had a great team put in place to aid my recovery, who I am still working with on a daily basis. I was able to get the help I needed, gain an EMR paramedic degree, a Criminology degree, and fell in love and married my husband. Now as a retired Veteran I am starting the next chapter in my life as a jewelry designer and entrepreneur.
I always wanted a way to give back to Veterans less fortunate than me, and it took me awhile to figure out how to do that. One day a light bulb went off, and what started as tinkering with a way to incorporate brass shell casings into jewelry, has blossomed into unique Patent Pending designs, and a company I have always dreamed of. By allowing me to combine the art therapy of creation, with support for other Veterans around the world, this is truly something I am proud to build and share with the world.
Brass & Unity aims to tell a part of my story, your story, and all of our stories with each uniquely created collection. Each piece is a reminder to be strong, follow your dreams, and never give up!
Thank you for your continued support!
Formerly known as Her Wearables, we decided to rebrand after a successful market test. We are now going by the name Brass & Unity, and are excited to start this new chapter! We will deliver the same great products and continue to support our cause. The purpose of the rebrand was to be a gender neutral company, offering unisex products without limitations. We hope you love it as much as we do!
Brass & Unity
Not just our name, it's what we do. We manufacture jewelry from previously fired brass shell casings, then unite a portion of our proceeds with Veterans who need our help.
Help For Veterans
Countless Veterans return home with life changing injuries, both physical and mental, and often times never get the help they need, or depend on. Whether it's loss of limb, PTSD, or anything in-between we want to help.
All of our pieces are hand crafted with care, and of the highest quality possible. Our goal is to employ as many Veterans as possible - Allowing a safe place for them to work with their peers, while providing income many of them need to live.
Fashion With a Purpose
Even though we start with a bullet casing, we manufacture beautiful pieces that can be worn in any scenario. These Patent Pending pieces combine an up-cycled casing with a wide range of materials and colors to create pieces to suit anyones style, taste, and fashion trend.
