You are going to have a great day when a package from iheartmies arrives in the mail. The jewelry is handcrafted, refreshingly simple, and has an timeless quality to them. The photo above showcases the thought taken in the packaging details. Old architectural drawings, Rolodex cards, and colorful string have all been re-purposed with a second life.

Wiki: Redlining is the practice of denying, or increasing the cost of services such as banking, insurance, access to jobs, access to health care, or even supermarkets to residents in certain, often racially determined, areas. The term "redlining" was coined in the late 1960s by John McKnight, a Northwestern University sociologist and community activist. It describes the practice of marking a red line on a map to delineate the area where banks would not invest; later the term was applied to discrimination against a particular group of people (usually by race or sex) no matter the geography. During the heyday of redlining, the areas most frequently discriminated against were black inner city neighborhoods. For example, in Atlanta, through at least the 1980s, this practice meant that banks would often lend to lower-income whites but not to middle- or upper-income blacks.
