During this time of crisis, we want to show our appreciation for those in the medical community supporting the most vulnerable by raising money for the UN Foundation #COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund for the World Health Organisation (WHO). Your support will help WHO to track and understand the spread of the virus, ensure that patients get treatment, and frontline workers get essential supplies and information. Donations will also help WHO to accelerate their efforts in developing vaccines, tests, and treatments.
Through our charity project ‘Loving Hands’, jewellery photographer Julia Flit of GEM Kreatives and Liza Urla of GEMOLOGUE curated a limited edition series of prints to inspire you and give hope during this difficult time. As always, we put a lot of love and work into our creations to make sure they are just perfect for you and your loved ones. Each 10”x12” C-type Metallic print comes framed in a modern bespoke black frame 13"x17" with unreflective UVP 70% glass. All profits from the ‘Loving Hands’ collection will be donated to the UN Foundation #COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.
We want these prints to inspire you to reach out to others during these challenging times and remember how we defeated the pandemic together, by lending a helping hand and offering support. We are all affected by the growing coronavirus pandemic and ‘Loving Hands’ is our way of extending a loving hand to those who need our help. Staying indoors does not mean we can’t do anything to help. We wish you and your dearest one’s health and love.

"Once the storm is over, we will all look at the World in a light of gratitude, and the World will bless the ones who helped it pass. I am deeply shaken by the pandemic and cannot simply step aside without doing my part. The feeling of sorrow led to the inspiration for the ‘Loving Hands’ collaboration with photography artist Julia Flit. Together we have created seven limited edition gallery quality art prints. All profits from the collaboration will be donated to the UN Foundation #COVID19 Solidarity Response Fund for WHO.” Liza Urla
