In the age of fast fashion it’s not often that I find accessories that are both handmade and fair trade, but that’s exactly what I found at UncommonGoods, a B corporation which uses the power of business to solve social and environmental problems. The gold heart-shaped necklace I’m wearing above is cut and hand sewn by Colombian artisans, many of whom are women from displaced communities in Colombia and rely on a stable income from handcrafting jewelry.
Ever since I received the necklace courtesy of UncommonGoods* I can’t stop wearing it with my summer outfits. The ornate yet minimalist design, inspired by traditional Colombian art and lace applique art, is versatile enough for work, weddings, even swimwear (yes, I wore it to the beach). Here, I paired it with my favorite buy cheap phentermine choice little white dress and gold belt for a feminine weekend look in Boston. If you’ve never shopped at UncommonGoods before, you need to check them out, especially if you’re looking for quirky wedding or anniversary gifts.
