things you should know about: same sky bracelets.

talk about fashion you can feel about, i've just became hip to same sky, a company that empowers women by helping them to make a living through entrepreneurship. based in rwanda, same sky partners with gahaya links, a company that employs hiv+ women who are all survivors of the 1994 rwandan genocide. rather than a hand out, these women are taught a jewelry-making skill that allows them to rebuild their lives and care for themselves and their families.

they have two lines of bracelets - the glass bead bracelets ($160) are crocheted with handblown glass beads and the fabric wrap bracelets ($40) are braided with fabrics and adorned with beads. they are available at several stores throughout new york, houston, vegas and jamaica. they're also available directly through their online shop.

Both are beautiful pieces. I love the multicolored purplish one the best though
