Why not give a gift of good this holiday season? Trina Turk has partnered with Nest Artisans by selling handcrafted necklaces and bracelets by women artisans from developing nations. 100% of the proceeds of each piece sold will go to empowering and enriching the lives of the women who created the jewelry. According to the Nest mission statement:
Nest is a nonprofit organization that empowers female artists and artisans around the world. Using a unique combination of interest-free microfinance loans, mentoring from established designers, as well as a market in which to sell their crafts, Nest helps its loan recipients create successful small businesses. Nest instills pride of ownership, preserves ancient artistic traditions and successfully moves women from poverty to self-sufficiency.The Nest Artisans for Trina Turk bracelet, above, retails for $21 and the necklace for $40. They're available at select Trina Turk stores nationwide this holiday season.
