What I Wore: Noonday Collection

I'm so excited about today's outfit post. Kirsten, one of Noonday Collective's ambassadors from Richmond, Virginia, recently reached out to me to tell me a little more about Noonday Collections. Noonday Collections is a jewelry company that sells jewelry, home items, and gifts that have been created by artisans in third world countries. Each sale helps empower these artisans by giving them a means of providing for their families.

Kirsten offererd the send me the "ancient ways" necklace to wear in an outfit post, and I love it. It's completely different from every other necklace I own, and the story behind it is incredible. The necklace is handmade in Ethiopia, using recycled copper, nickel, and bronze that is melted down from from previous war weapons. Most  of the artisans that create this piece are HIV positive, and in addition to job training, the artisans also recieve crucial healthcare and literacy trainng.

You can check out Kirsten's Noonday Collection shop here- there's lots of beautiful, unique pieces in the shop! Thanks for sending me the necklace, Kirsten!
