This Orange County based business does not take it philanthropic mission lightly. Each item featured is meticulously selected from poverty-stricken artisans with a promise that they will receive pay for their hard work.
Fair Trade Jewelry
Why is it important to support fair trade? First, you are making a global difference for people who live in underdeveloped countries that work so hard to survive. When you invest in fair trade jewelry (also fair trade clothing or food) proceeds go back to support men, women, and children in need.
Standards have been created and are honored to ensure that artisans working for fair trade companies will make a living as opposed to working under conditions where they are in harm’s way and/or not fairly compensated for their laborious work.
Another reason to support fair trade is that each piece is handcrafted. The craftsmanship of handmade jewelry is irreplaceable. Every piece is carefully fabricated by hand to produce an item that is one of a kind.
Speaking of one of a kind, I am passionate about Strand and Bangle artisan jewelry collection! Each bracelet, bangle, cuff, necklace, and earrings are unique and striking. If you love boho, then Strand and Bangle is for you! Its jewelry is the perfect accompaniment to complete your boho glam or casual day look.
Strand and Bangle on Spotlight
I love the Wire Wrap Cuff in Gold, the layers of brass wires are bold and beautiful and I feel like Wonder Woman wearing it! Because my Asian sign is the snake it was only natural that I would love the serpentine shape of the beaded Ombre Metallic Serpent Wrap Bracelet. The Fringed “Y” Necklace is a glamorous piece designed to make a huge impact! I love this long statement necklace. The Round Lattice Earrings in brass are so charming with its die-cut design.
