Artisan Eco-Friendly Jewelry
I love wearing handmade jewelry and supporting local artisans. Recently, one of my friends was wearing a beautiful piece of jewelry, and when I looked at the website where she purchased it, I immediately knew that I wanted to get a beautiful necklace to add to my jewelry collection.
The company, Songa, is unlike any other artisan website that I have ordered an item from before. They employ skilled women throughout the country of Rwanda to make jewelry and handbags. They provide the women with skills that they need to create beautiful pieces of art and give them an opportunity to money to help support their families. A great part of the jewelry line is that everything is made with recycled products, and the women receive fair wages for their work that help them to move forward with their lives.
The necklace that I ordered was the Tasara pendant. It is made with natural cow horn material and beads. When the package arrived, it came in a beautiful bag, and I have enjoyed wearing it on a regular basis. Everytime that I wear the necklace, I get compliments on how beautiful it is. I love telling people who ask me about the necklace about Songa, and how they can help support Rwanda by purchasing a necklace or handbag.
When looking for the perfect Mother’s Day gift or a special gift for a friend, consider purchasing an item from Songa. It is a gift that gives back by helping to support the woman in Rwanda by giving them much needed work. Learn more about Songa online.
