Holiday Gift Guide: 31 Bits Jewelry Whistler Bracelet Review & Giveaway

Sweet Tart Necklace
A few weeks ago I was looking around the internet and entering giveaways when I came across one for a beautiful necklace from 31 Bits. I have to admit I'd never heard of the company, but was enamored with the piece of jewelry, so I did some research and found out the amazing story of 31 Bits. The owner actually traveled to Uganda while in college and was so taken with the beautiful paper jewelry the women created. After completing her degree, she and some friends went back and now buy jewelry from Uganda on a monthly basis! The result is that the women of Uganda have great paying jobs to help counteract poverty and help them overcome obstacles. Plus, 31 Bits shares amazing jewelry with us!

Their program "equips women by providing literacy education, financial and vocational training, holistic care, and strong support systems, empowering individuals to further their careers and attain social equity". That alone is reason enough for me to support 31 Bits, but the fact that the jewelry  is so beautiful just adds to the appeal and uniqueness of the idea.

We received the 31 Bits Whistler Bracelet in Seafoam Teal for review and it is gorgeous. It looks pretty on the website, but in person it just sparkles. I love the color and think it matches perfectly with the copper beads. This bracelet has six strands and comes in Orange, Blue, Seafoam or Purple.
I've said it before and will say it again... I am very picky about the type of jewelry I wear. I'm probably the only woman who will say this, but I don't care for diamonds and gold. I'd rather wear unique handmade items that tell a story. The Whistler fits into this category perfectly. It's perfect to wear with a dress to church or out to eat, but it would also look great with jeans and a t-shirt. I love that it is versatile and can be worn so often.
The bracelet came in this beautiful pouch!

Retailing at only $32, this makes for a perfect holiday gift! Besides me, I know my sister-in-law would love this bracelet. She's a teacher and could wear this with many of her everyday outfits.
I love the beads!
Take a look at the 31 Bits website! I am sure you will find so many great gift ideas for others (and yourself) just like I did.
