A long time coming—the Corlett Exclusives is a very special capsule for both Merchants of the Sun and the Corlett family. A set of four bespoke pieces, all handcrafted from recycled 925 sterling silver, to inspire change and raise money for the Cancer Council. Each piece featuring hand-drawn symbols by Sam Corlett.
The concept came to fruition from a chance encounter between Merchants of the Sun co-founders, the Banks brothers and Sam Corlett. Born a central coast lad, when not creating stunning pieces of art or making magic with his trusty little Contax film camera, you can find @samcorlett starring in some of the biggest Netflix shows overseas.
Sam's mother, a true fighter, has beaten Cancer 3 times. During her second battle, she gave Sam's older brother, his young sister and himself a piece of jewellery each, with the words inscribed: La Famiglia Sempre. Family Forever.
As such, Sam designed a symbol to represent just that for his family. Something that reminds us of what truly matters, and brings us back to a gratitude... for life.
Thus, the Corlett Exclusives capsule was born—featuring these special hand-drawn symbols by Sam. Our hope is to expand this family love to the world. Beyond blood. Each piece a gentle reminder to appreciate those special moments with loved ones, and to stay strong through the tough times!
Sam has generously decided to donate all of his proceeds (40% of the profits) to the Cancer Council here in Australia, who work across every area of every cancer. These funds will go towards helping people from diagnosis, to treatment and to survivorship. These pieces mean a lot to us, and we hope you dig what we have created!
— Warm regards, the Banks brothers and the Corlett family.
La famiglia sempre
