Bluma Project – Jewelry from Rwanda and Ghana

I am constantly looking for new artisan made products and pieces crafted from around the world.  I came across Bluma Project at Anthropologie about a year ago and their product line fits right in. They work with female artisans in Rwanda and Ghana to create jewelry and textile collections.  After their products are complete they sell them to retailers in the Western Markets. By collaborating with these artisans they hope to provide employment opportunities where there is very little. Make sure to check out their SITE. I attached a few of my favorite pieces:)

Can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
