I read an article recently on Glitter Guide about the most amazing jewelry company, 31 Bits, doing the most amazing work in Uganda. Essentially, they buy handmade jewelry from about 108 women and bring to the US to sell and generate a profit that is used to continue to purchase jewelry for beneficiaries, as well provide them with numerous development programs, equipping them to develop a career and attain social equity on a local level. GO GIRL POWER!!
I bought the Aruba and when it arrived in the mail, it's as gorgeous as the image on the website. Every bead is different, with vibrant colors showing through each spiral of color. Also, the bag that it arrived in was so fun! Won't be my last purchase from 31 Bits.
