I’m loving these Free Spirit Earrings.

In Nepal, most women are not considered equal to men in society. This leads to a lack of confidence, privilege and education. However, with Trades of Hope, these women are gaining a sense of worth by becoming strong and self-reliant by creating beautiful products.  Purchase this piece and empower a woman in Nepal!

 

I’m also have been wearing this Warrior Cuff with everything!  

The poverty cycle in India continues primarily because of the lack of proper education. Most schools are not free in India and many cannot afford to send their children to school. Girls’ educations are often neglected as they are considered burdens on their families. Therefore, many children never learn to read or write and grow up to very limited opportunities. However, through this artisan group, futures are being transformed. Women are being empowered and their children are provided with a free education. An impact to be felt for generations to come. 
Purchase this piece and empower a woman in India! 

 

This Restoring Hope Necklace is so chic!


In rural areas where many women earn little more than a dollar a day, women often fall prey to sex trafficking while trying to support their families. This artisan group is changing lives by rescuing women out of the brothels in Asia and providing them with healthy work and rehabilitation in a supportive environment. They are given holistic care which gives each woman the opportunity for vocational training, healthcare, shelter, counseling, as well as education grants for the women and their children. Through their community outreach programs, they have provided a path for hope and restoration that empowers these women towards a joyful and prosperous future. Purchase this piece and empower a woman in Asia! 

 

The Shasta Necklace is perfect to add a little glam.


The Indian artisans who make this necklace focus on providing education for the neediest children in their community. They have worked hard to raise enough funds to establish a school so that parents in their poor community won’t have to choose between working to provide basic needs for their families or sending their children to school. This group has given work to a multitude of women without sacrificing their desire for their children to have a bright and promising future.  Purchase this piece and empower a woman in India!

 

Every single piece is beautiful and every single piece empowers women around the world!  These are pieces that you can feel good about buying.  I’m always wearing my Trades of Hope!
