InvisaWear: Great-looking smart jewelry that doubles as a panic button

Protected and in style

Published

Who knew that something this pretty can potentially save your life?

These beautiful pendants are not just accessories. Called InvisaWear, these trinkets also double as panic buttons.


Designed specifically to be discreet, this different type of jewelry is the product of a harrowing experience. Rajia, InvisaWear’s CEO, was leaving an event when she was catcalled by a group of men in a car. As she was walking, the car stopped and one of the catcallers started to get off. Thankfully, Rajia, was able to get to her car and drive off unharmed. But, that incident left a mark on her: She felt completely helpless in the moment. Thus, the idea of an easy-to-reach panic button for everyday wear was born.

All you need to do is install the InvisaWear app, choose up to five emergency contacts, pair your jewelry to your phone via Bluetooth, and you’re all set.

With a quick double-click on the back of the charm, this accessory will send an SOS message to five contacts which will include your GPS location. You can even enable 911 functionalities that will automatically connect your emergency contacts to 911, who’ll then be able to view your location.

The best part is that you can wear this every day without ruining your #OOTDs or tarnishing. These dainty and useful charms are made with brass and are plated with either 14K gold or rhodium with cubic zirconia.

Global Sources: Content Creator Essentials

We found the must-have portable lighting setup for creators

Published

Here at Global Sources we’ve been on the lookout for products that you might be interested in either buying or selling, but in the process we found gadgets, equipment, and accessories that we like. As traveling creators, we’re still in the process of figuring out how to have a more efficient and effective mobile studio that we can carry with us wherever.

Telesin’s egg-shaped charging cases are perfect for our Sony a7s batteries — they’re colourful and handy. They also double as memory card readers and holders. We also found portable LED lights from Number King that makes setting up fuss-free. It has a built-in battery but is slim and small enough to fit in a backpack’s laptop compartment.


With all the traveling we do, taking care of one’s skin is downgraded to the bottom of priorities. An easy solution is a portable humidifier from Remax Life — it’s as small as a pen, and just needs a bottle of water to work its magic.

Last but not the least: a solar-powered backpack that’s surprisingly designed well and is stylish! Having a lot of compartments and extra room is always a plus for creators for our tools and knicknacks.
