Because peace is everywhere
Paxy is beautiful energy transformed into a company. Is the energy of pure love to others and to ourselves. Our name Paxy comes from the word peace in Latin: PAX. Our purpose is to inspire women to become ambassadors of a culture of peace, creating a more harmonious society, wearing hand-made jewellery made by women, honouring their inner power, multiculturalism, and love for each other.
A culture of peace represents solidarity, creativity, equality, and the ability to resolve daily conflicts in a non-violent way.
Paxy started in 2017 when Nancy and Kieran traveled to Venezuela to visit Nancy's family. They met amazing artists who make wonderful Caribbean jewellery and decided to show the world those beautiful pieces of jewellery representing culture, nature, and connection with our inner self.
Venezuela is going through a very severe humanitarian crisis and Nancy and Kieran want to do something meaningful to help. They created Paxy to enhance economic prosperity for women in Venezuela and South America. Paxy has a double impact, we supports young entrepreneurs to make a positive social impact in Venezuela and Australia through our partner organisations. We give 10% of its profits to support social projects in Venezuela.
At Paxy we believe that girls' and women's empowerment, ethical employment, and education for social entrepreneurship are factors that improve local and global peace. We create events and loving gatherings to spread this message and get in touch with you.
We are members of the United Nations Association of Australia NSW and are committed to creating a more sustainable and peaceful world. Come and share this wonderful journey with us, peace is everywhere!
