Isn’t it gorgeous? Well, I’ve got the chance for you to get your own set for free! Before we get to the raffle though, let me tell you what made me really fall in love with Colombian Girl Jewelry.
Aside from the vibrant colors and variety of styles, the name itself caught my eye. Not only do I love jewelry, but I am also of Colombian descent. So imagine my surprise at learning that a group of unknown women on the outskirts of Bogota, Colombia began what is now known as organic or eco-chic jewelry. Using seeds and fruit to make beautiful jewelry by hand, they forever changed the face of women’s fashion in Colombia and Europe. From earrings to bracelets to necklaces…they are each a work of art. Now, thanks to Colombian Girl Jewelry, this unique and “green” fashion statement is spreading throughout the United States.
All of the sets and collections found at Colombian Girl Jewelry are 100% all-natural and organic, made from fruits and seeds that are found in Colombia’s Amazon Rainforest. From orange peels to coffee beans…it’s been said that you can sometimes still smell the “ingredients” used to make the jewelry.
“Beyond the jewelry, it is the artisans behind the scene producing it by hand, one seed at a time, that are at the heart of our business. ‘Colombian Girl Jewelry’ is just that, jewelry crafted by a Colombian Girl, most of who are single mothers or young women without an opportunity for higher education, united in community by their special craft. The jewelry they produce represents more than a job, for them it is an art – an ensemble of color on a palette of seeds and fruit – and with it they are taken to new heights, above their overcrowded block in Bogota, to a place where they have a name and their face is finally recognized.” ~www.colombiangirljewerly.com
