Sissy Yates for Julia Farr

The Mina Charm


Derived from the Latin phrase “Cura Femina” (care of the whole woman) and inspired by the universal feminine silhouette conceived by Julia Farr, the Mina Charm was created by jewelry designer Sissy Yates for Julia Farr. 

The charm necklace is to be worn as a symbol and reminder of female wholeness and strength. Wear it, center yourself, and feel complete within and connected to the outside world.

Mina as Symbol

Mina is a symbol of both the wholeness of the individual woman, as well as her vital part in the world around her.  She represents the bond between individual spirit and the universal feminine. She is one; she is many.

Mina as a Reminder

Mina serves as a concrete reminder to take a moment to breathe, to create a space, to be present and aware.  Touch the charm and honor all that one is NOW.

The charm is 14 karat gold plate on an 18" pyrite beaded chain.

Proceeds From the Sale of the Mina Charm Benefit Women for Women International

Since 1993, Women for Women International (WfWI) has worked to provide women survivors of war, civil strife, and other conflicts with resources to move from crisis and poverty into stability and self-sufficiency. WfWI delivers these resources through a tiered, year-long program that begins with direct financial aid and emotional support. Participants also learn about their legal rights; receive life-skills training such as health awareness, numeracy, budgeting and saving, decision-making and negotiation, and civic participation; learn business and vocational skills; and gain access to income-generating activities where they can apply those skills and begin moving towards economic stability. Along with helping more than 350,000 women in the past 20 years to rebuild their own lives and those of their families and communities after war, WfWI uses its voice to call global attention to the unique role that women play in advancing peace throughout society. WfWI works in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Iraq, Kosovo, Nigeria, Rwanda, and South Sudan.
