Same Sky Twilight Glass Bead Bracelet: Look Good While Doing Good

As we head toward fall fashion season and those exciting new purchases, why not look good while doing good? I was thrilled when I received this Same Sky Twilight bracelet as a gift. Same Sky is a trade-not-aid initiative providing employment opportunities to women in Rwanda who survived the genocide of 1994. Some of these women are artisans who crochet hand-blown glass beads into bracelets, the sale of which goes to support them and their families. Packaged in a small canvas bag, each bracelet comes with a paper signed by the woman who crafted it. The dark gray beads with hints of silver are perfect for fall’s color palate. Not only do I love this stylish accessory, but I love the feeling of being a part of a cultural movement! —Lindsay Hahn

The Young Designers Market: Hidden Gems

young-designer-market

Last weekend, one of my best girlfriends introduced me to the Young Designers Market in downtown NYC. The market runs every weekend from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. and hosts up-and-coming designers who display a variety of hand-made jewelry, clothing, and accessories. Once inside, the two of us made a beeline to the jewelry section, where everything from wire-thin gold earrings to funky chunky necklaces boasting incredibly reasonable prices hung on display! For just $25, I scored two pairs of gorgeous, colorful, and not to mention expensive-looking earrings from a designer who could (and should) go big one day. For now, I’ll enjoy the great steal! (Bargaining encouraged!)—Courtney Bannerot
