the noonday collection: fall launch and a giveaway!

I've told you about how Noonday captured my heart.
The more I work with them, the more I know I am where I am supposed to be. Every time I read about the women and families who create each piece, or watch the video of the Noonday story, I am in tears. And I've watched the video about 49 times. Still teary. 
Every. single. time.

When I read the stories and look at the pictures from the trip that Noonday took to Rwanda this summer to partner with the International Justice Mission, my heart is heavy and light all at once. To see the joy that emanates from the artisan group there - these women who've experienced pain and suffering and have risen. They are filled with hope, they extend love and peace, they are beauty defined.



Every time I pick up a piece of jewelry, I am in awe of the mission of Noonday and the desire to create sustainable jobs, and emergency assistance, and hope in these communities. Dignified work and real relationships have grown out of this vision. And I get to be a part of it. You get to be a part of it!

And today is exciting, you guys. Because it is the launch of the absolutely beyond gorgeous fall line. I am partnering with a bunch of other ambassadors to bring you a month long giveaway party! Nearly every day for the next 30 days, one or two bloggers will be giving away all kinds of Noonday goodness each day. I am here to kick things off - and later today you can hop over to Brooke's for a chance to win even more!


Go check out the fall collection and come back to win $50 to spend on your wish list!

  6. also love the trinity necklace, made in peru by fermin, i think. his work in his community, creating work opportunities and supporting other businesses is beautiful. working with gems, beautiful things found in rough places, mirrors his own life. :)

    "it’s about looking at someone the world has forgotten and seeing beauty, value, and a story that matters. it’s about recognizing that even though people may look like rough stones, they were made to be gems"
