a few summer faves & a TOMS offer

morning friends! i wanted to share a few of my favorite summer items from noonday!

20paigeknudsen.com

1. minted necklace. paper beads from uganda. a top seller & great price point at $28. layers with several pieces very easily. can double wrap around your neck as well

2. sterling strand necklace. a personal fave. subtle enough to be worn with a group or classic enough to stand alone.

3. fusion necklace. i love this little boho baby. made with japenese glass beads in guatemala. the beads are a finer quality and create such a cool look.

4.safari stack bracelets. goodness, at $14 mixed metals & paper beads cutie from uganda make this an excellent & affordable gift. teacher gifts,tweens, or anyone that can create a great arm party will want to add one of these to the mix. aqua & salmon.

5. glimmer bracelet. mixed metals, glass beads & shell. for anyone that loves to add a little blingybling to the mix.

6. empress earrings 18k gold plated earrings, beauties hand made {with love} in peru.

and then…these two….i’ve been waiting for these. last fall in guatemala, we went to visit several of our artisans. i purchased my first ever passport & made my ( well obviously now) first trip out of the country. i absolutely loved it! while in antigua we were able to collaborate and choose colors for these two cuffs! the mosaic & the laguna. just as the fusion necklace is made of japanese glass beads, these are as well …..and they are beautiful!

7. mosaic cuff soft leather covered with citrus glass beads. looks so cute for summer. i stack mine with a few sterling bracelets/cuffs & sometimes a stamped leather cuff as well.

8. laguna cuff  again, another soft leather cuff featuring exquisite glass beads…and a little shimmer makes this another great addition to your summer wardrobe.

21paigeknudsen.comnot long after returning home from guatemala, TOMS reached out & approached jessica about collaborating with them & adding some pieces to their market place!!  this is such an amazing opportunity for our artisans to grow their business even larger! the super cool thing for me is two of the pieces TOMS added to their market were two of the pieces we actually were able to view being made while in guatemala! it was a huge honor to photograph the making of the ana scarf & the chasing triangles cuff!

below are a few of my images from that trip!
