Trend Alert!

You saw my new bling from the previous post, but I wanted to elaborate a tad on these chic bracelets! They are called Lily and Laura bracelets, and their mission, stated on their website, is as follows...

"Laura and our women artists in Nepal custom design these creations which are handcrafted in the Kathmandu Valley.  We use the finest glass beads in the world in our bracelets.  Our business focus is to pay more than fair trade wages to our artisans in Nepal thereby improving the quality of their lives while providing you with beautiful, top quality, handcrafted glass beaded bracelets.  All beading is done in the comfort of their homes or on rooftop decks during nice weather.  Our artists also have the freedom to work only when they are inspired."

Now if you ask me that is some guilt-free shopping!

In Tallahassee at Blue Abaco

In Atlanta at Erika Reade Ltd. (this was the only shop I could find via Google search that sells these bracelets...I think they'd do great in Atlanta, so spread the word to your favorite boutiques!)
