I’m excited to see 31bits announced today their new line up for WINTER . I love LOVE LOVE their jewelry especially their necklaces. A few months ago we did a summer giveaway and the response was we want more! Instead of a giveaway how about a code so everyone can get in on the action?
Last month when I packed up for BlogHer 31 Bits sent me the Sunkissed necklace and I instantly fell in love with the weight. I am super picky about my necklaces, I love chunk and I love color but not the weight. My neck gets sore just thinking about a strapping on a heavy necklace, can’t do it that’s why I love this line. The beads are made of paper then varnished, all by hand by women in Uganda who then are compensated for their work as well as trained and educated and most importantly empowered to make changes that enable them to rise above poverty and into a better quality of life. Its a good cause. To read more about the designers in Uganda visit 31 bits or visit their blog.
The more time we spend listening to the stories of our designers in Uganda, the more we realize how much we can learn from them. Their joy is contagious, their creativity is inspiring, and their dedication is influential. While every bead is being rolled, varnished, and strung, stories are being shared, spirits are being lifted, and empowerment is happening. Every necklace has a story. Our winter collection blends warm and positive colors with crisp and exhilarating design, allowing each piece to tell a story of its own, In our Winter Chronicles, we hope you catch a glimpse of the joy, creativity, and dedication found in the women we are inspired by daily
