I’m pretty excited to share the brand new wedding collection from 31 Bits! Of course I love all types of jewelry, but 31 Bits is a pretty awesome company. Started in Southern California by 5 college students, they work with women in Northern Uganda who make jewelry out of recycled paper. Yep, that gorgeous necklace above it made of paper! Pretty rad, right? By helping these women sell their jewelry, not only are they helping provide a sustainable monthly income for the women, but also education and development programs that prepare these women for future careers. Such an amazing organization + cause. And their jewelry would be SO perfect for your wedding day – that you could totally wear again after the wedding, right? Big thanks to Jasmine Star for the photos and to Summer Watkins for the styling.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the woven delight necklace as seen below. Super pretty, right?!
I’m also excited to announce that we have a 20% off promo code for GWS readers good for the month of April 2012! Enter promo code GWS20 for your order and you’ll receive 20% off plus help a wonderful cause! Check out their entire wedding collection here and if you’d like to learn more about the organization, here is a great video to watch that shares more what they do in Northern Uganda.
Thanks to these talented creatives for their help with this shoot!
