Strand and Bangle came to be out of a personal quest to battle poverty and homelessness. It may seem an odd correlation, but this jewelry, cautiously selected, makes a difference and brings hope to individuals all over the world. You may wonder, "How can that be?"
One of two primary core values of this company is Fair Trade. Each certified piece is sustainably handmade, the work of an artisan given safe working conditions. Each piece purchased is lifting an artisan and their family out of impoverished living conditions, building educational opportunities, and improving medical care. In addition to the broad perspective, a donation from each piece sold will go to a local non-profit aiding in the battle of homelessness locally. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping a soul out there somewhere.
The plight of the downtrodden is a journey I hope to embark on and make a difference to improve individual lives. Thank you for taking this journey with me.
