In this season of giving, I thought I'd share a few of my favorite makers and creators to help with your shopping and gifting needs! Take a look at their pages for some great gift ideas!
Raw and Redeemed - My friend Christine makes beautiful reclaimed wood pieces: big, stunning pieces as well as smaller statement pieces (I have a sweet little "JOY" sign in my work cube). Check out her beautiful Tree of Life ornament - she has dedicated proceeds to help rescue young women from sex-trafficking. I can't wait to hang this on my tree!
Forai - I recently discovered this local group who trains refugee and immigrant women to make these beautiful pieces of jewelry. Today I am wearing a beautiful pair of turquoise drop earrings. I always get lots of compliments on these when I wear them!
Made for Freedom - MFF helps empower women through micro-loans to encourage small business and independence. But they also have an emphasis on ethical fashion, recognizing the power of the clothing industry to stop human trafficking. Check out their signature Creabeli pants for your favorite fashionista.
Sadly Harmless - These fun, whimsical prints are fabulous art work! I have been collecting the shadow boxes for several years - just waiting to add this lovely owl to my collection. I love the power of color and detail in these pieces.
