Two things I wanted to add to my collections this year were high-quality wood beads and metal fringe.
So glad I took the time to search for these wonderful new beads to share with you - hand-made/fair-trade wood beads from the Philippines. Read more about them in my fair-trade section.
Also, excited to find just the right chain to use in my fringe necklaces. The first one I made I kept for my self - it's modern and edgy - just what I had hoped for.
I design costume jewelry that is a cut above what you will find in any store that sell mass-produced goods. When you see the materials in person you can tell the difference. The price is higher because you get quality materials that are produced by people who are paid a fair wage in a safe environment.
