DETROIT (AP) Ford Motor Co. has commissioned a Detroit company to repurpose graffiti from the Michigan Central Station as the automaker prepares to renovate the long vacant train depot.

Ford selected jewelry design company Rebel Nell to create pieces from paint chips that have fallen from the station's walls. The company helps women transitioning from homelessness.

Ford spokesman Shawn Wilson says the automaker selected Rebel Nell because of their model and empowerment of women.

Rebel Nell has created about 300 jewelry pieces, including pendants, cuff links, pins and items in the shape of Detroit and Michigan. Proceeds will go to four local charities including Love Runs and Covenant House.

Ford plans to spend roughly $740 million renovating the station and redeveloping other area properties for research and development of self-driving vehicles .
