I was smitten with this necklace the moment Tammy Wilson from Earthlover sent me a sneak peek. Crafted by hand using imfibinga seeds (awesome), this pendant hangs from a 24″ hand knitted cotton string.
This necklace is part of the Be Sweet product line, working with villagers in South African tribes – their mission is to “bring socially and environmentally friendly products to fashionable consumers that evoke an individual style and help support community development around the world.” A portion of their proceeds are donated to a school in the Eastern Cape, where many of the artisans’ children attend classes. What makes a better gift than a gift that gives back? Nothing. This necklace is available at Earthlover for $21.00 … and if the necklace isn’t for you, there is a gorgeous heart shaped pin!
