Great Green Find The Andean Collection Sustainable Jewlery Giveaway

My fashion style is very simple, so when I get dressed I love jewelry that gives my outfit a punch of color. Something that when I wear it people are naturally drawn to it. I love to wear an outfit that is simple, yet classy and dress it up with fab jewelry. You would be amazed how great a simple white tank will look when paired with a great piece of jewelry. It has a huge impact.

I recently received some jewelry from The Andean Collection. I received the 3 in 1 long stranded acai necklace, the diamond tagua earrings, and the pambil bracelet with matching earrings. All of these pieces are fabulous and add that visual impact of color that I desire, are made of natural materials that are good for the Earth and the people who inhabit it and the jewelry is touchable and fun. There is something for everyone.

The Andean Collection creates socially conscious fashion that is fabulous. The idea behind The Andean Collection is to create great fashion forward design that has a positive impact on our planet while providing artisans a path out of poverty by using fair trade principals. The Andean Collection pays its artisans a fair wage and also provides the artisans a share in the profits by giving them partial ownership of The Andean Collection.

The Andean Collection was founded by Amanda Judge who currently lives in Manhattan’s East Village. Amanda grew up spending hours with her godmother creating necklaces out of glass beads. Amanda holds a M.A. in Law and Diplomacy from The Fletcher School at Tufts University where she studied development economics and poverty reduction strategies. Amanda created The Andean Collection in September 2008, in order to introduce the indigenous artisans of northern Ecuador.

Another thing that I love about The Andean Collection is that the natural materials that are used to make the jewelry line, such as seeds, are sustainably harvested from the South American rain forests. This means that the forests were not harmed for these seeds. My favorites are the pieces of jewelry made with Acai and Tagua seeds.

Amanda @ The Andean Collection has been so lovely to offer ONE of my readers a $25 gift certificate to use to purchase anything from The Andean Collection. This would be a lovely gift for a family member, friend or even yourself for the upcoming holidays.
