This fair trade necklace giveaway was brought to you by Gandhara Designs. All opinions are mine.
Beautiful jewelry that is fair trade and high quality is hard to come by. It is very hard to tell if something has been created by workers who are treated ethically and fairly. Gandhara Designs is a Canadian boutique that specializes in one-of-a-kind, heirloom quality artisinal jewelry hand-crafted from artisans all over the world. These pieces are unique and can be passed on throughout the generations.
