I’m going to share a little secret with you…. I am a huge fan of very unique handmade pieces. Briella Soul’s crocheted & tatted earrings to That Grace Restored handmade journals and stationery…I enjoy it all. I also appreciate products that are on a mission to give back. Being in a position to make-a-difference with a simple purchase is important to me. So, when a friend told me about the Noonday Collection and their mission to support female artisans from impoverished areas around the world I had to learn more.
On their website Noonday shares that they are a jewelry company that travels….
“the world to find artisan entrepreneurs who are passionate about creating opportunity in their communities. Artisan businesses in the developing world struggle to gain access to a global market where they can sell their handmade jewelry and accessories. When you shop our collection, host a Trunk Show, or become an Ambassador, you join us in creating a growing marketplace for artisan businesses, enabling them to make a difference in their communities.”
Noonday has many beautifully handcrafted pieces from earrings, necklaces, bracelets, handbags and many other accessories. There were so many items to choose from and each had its own unique beauty. You could even shop by countries that you were interested in supporting such as Afghanistan, Ecuador, Haiti, Ethiopia, India, Uganda, Vietnam and many more.
Check out the goodies I purchased….
Love the look of these leather feathered earrings. The cobalt blue & metallic gold really make them pop. Plus, they are as light as a feather…a little joke! Noonday shares that the Feather Fringe Earrings were made in India.
The cobalt blue of this resin wood bangle goes perfectly with my feathered earrings. Plus, the swirl of the blue & white paired with the wood of the bangle gave it a very interesting look & pairs nicely with other bangles. Noonday shares that this bangle was made by artisans in India.
My items shipped very quickly & came in a cloth handmade bag to protect the jewelry. I always get excited when my jewelry comes in its own little baggy. It just reminds me of how special it is.
Here I am trying to show off my Noonday pieces after I finished hosting a get-together. I love the look of my jewelry & appreciated the light weight feel, too.
It is the simple things we can do to impact each others lives even if it is just buying a pretty pair of earrings. When we, as women, support each other’s passions we not only make a difference in each other’s lives, but in the lives of our children and their communities. I have enjoyed wearing my earrings & bracelet from Noonday, but knowing that I am participating in a mission to #GiveBack has been even more important to me.
