Catch me by the sea – Celebrating one whole year of supporting Sea Shepherd!
Posted on July 06 2017
The month of July is a special one for us here at Indie and Harper. It not only marks the release of our Gold and Rose Gold Whale Tail necklaces, but it also has been one whole year since we started supporting the truly inspiring non-profit organisation that is Sea Shepherd.
Who are Sea Shepherd?
Who better than to tell the tale of who they are then Sea Shepherd themselves?
“Sea Shepherd is a non-profit conservation organisation whose mission is to end the destruction of habitat and slaughter of wildlife in the world’s oceans in order to conserve and protect ecosystems and species.” – https://www.seashepherd.org.au
Sea Shepherd have been protecting the worlds ocean life for 40 years now, which is an enormous milestone and effort as the fight to save and ensure the survival of our oceanic eco-system is an ongoing one.
Indie and Harper together with Sea Shepherd
Living and working by the sea is such an important part of our lives here at Indie and Harper, and a huge reason as to why we feel so connected to the ocean and its inhabitants. We live it and breathe it, and this is why joining together with Sea Shepherd was such a natural thing for us one whole year ago.
We decided that we had a voice and an available platform to help and spread the incredible word of this amazing organisation. We made the decision to donate $5.00 AUD from every Whale Tail Necklace to Sea Shepherd’s cause, and have been overwhelmed with the response from our amazing customers ever since.
We are so extremely proud and excited to say that since we started donating $5.00 AUD from every Indie and Harper Silver Whale Tail Necklace, we have raised an incredible $2,715.00 AUD to donate towards Sea Shepherd’s fight to end the destruction of the oceans habitats and wildlife!
This means that from the support of all you inspiring and kind hearted people, we have sold an astounding 543 necklaces. We couldn’t have done this without you, and thank you all from the bottom of our Indie and Harper hearts.

Want to be a part of the magic?
You may already have seen our Sterling Silver Whale Tail Necklaces before (hey, hopefully you even own one!) and now we are over the moon to announce that they also come in beautiful 9ct Gold and Rose Gold plating! Both of these pieces are placed onto a dainty 18inch plated chain and look amazing as a stand alone piece or layered amongst your other Indie and Harper jewels.
What an excuse to not only treat yourself to a new piece of beautiful bohemian jewellery, but also know that at the same time you are helping Sea Shepherd commit to the eradication of pirate whaling, poaching, shark finning, unlawful habitat destruction and violations of established laws in the world’s oceans.
