Why We Love It
Wear it on it's own or stacked with other bracelets. We love the dimensions and textures of the different beads, and the way the silver pops against the skin.
Our model is simple: partner with incredible organizations Making A Difference in the lives of women, then employ the women (and sometimes, men!) to make ethicgoods. Our partner organizations offer holistic care to survivors of modern day slavery, educate and protect those at risk of exploitation, and help women around the globe break the cycle of poverty. We believe economic stability is the key to removing vulnerability, so everything we carry was made by the woman it helped employ.
We’ve carefully selected only the pieces we love and want to use and wear everyday. We hope you love them as much as we do, and are inspired to Make A Difference, beautifully.
