Test Title 1



{simple things} 31 bits ..

another jewelry post! (sensing a theme? i obviously have a one track mind!)

more than once i've asked my friends kristin and ashley about the adorable paper bead jewelry they've been wearing. and more than once they've introduced me to 31 bits. finally last night i wrote it down - bc i just had to share!




{click to shop}

each piece of jewelry is handmade using 100% recycled paper and other local materials. lovely, right!?!

but we're not just talking EXTERNAL beauty ... this little company has a great big heart!

in 2007, co-founder kallie dovel traveled to uganda for the summer. she returned w/ a box of jewelry made by local women and the dream of launching a company to market and sell their beads. a year later, she returned to uganda w/ a few friends. they selected six women to begin buying jewelry from on a monthly basis. only 3 years later - they have now grown to 63 women.

through 31 bits, women earn an instant income and are equipped w/ literacy education, financial and vocational training, holistic care, and strong support systems. empowering women to rise above poverty through fashion + design! love it!

so ... how can we get involved?

1 // buy something! visit the shop here.
2 // throw a house party! say what?!? a house party! 31 bits sends you a box of jewelry. then, you invite your friends over to purchase one of their incredible pieces of jewelry while hearing stories about the women of 31 bits. (get more info here.)

i'm definitely thinking a party is in order! so nashville peeps - are you interested if i sign us up?

It's mine but she loves wearing my jewels so much so I let her wear this one. I love it and have given it as a gift so many times before. Such a great cause!
