It's finally here, the grand opening of our newest storefront at the Tippecanoe Mall in Lafayette, Indiana ... just minutes from Purdue University. And it's all happening just in time for Black Friday, with big BIG savings!

Our orange peel jewelry collection smells like orange peel, and our coffee bean collection, just like coffee! Look beautiful, and feel beautiful, knowing you are changing the lives of women half way across the globe, for the better ... one seed at a time! Come and see our unique handmade collection of organic jewelry in person, now available at the Tippecanoe Mall!
It is with great honor that we introduce the newest members of our artisan team! Meet Janiris, Judy, and Nina, three women living in Bogota, Colombia with a desire to step out of their comfort zone and master the craft of making handmade jewelry, entirely from fruit! Lead by our lead artisan Martha (pictured in the blue necklace above), these talented artisans underwent months of hands-on instruction, perfecting our method of hand crocheted organic jewelry, spanning all items showcased in our store, across all 7 categories of fruit. As the women progressed from larger fruit types and simple designs to our finer, more decadent line of cantaloupe seeds jewelry, they gained confidence and became illuminated by the daily challenge and end reward of their toil, literally reaping the "fruit" of their labor. Through their endeavor, many of the women realized for the first time they can do something productive outside of the home, earn money, and provide for their family, all the while transforming fruit and seeds into wearable works of art. The beauty inherent in our jewelry is plain to see, but our greater mission is to reveal the inner beauty of our Colombian women artisans and the lives they lead, as we share their story with the rest of the world.
Colombian Girl Jewelry is devoted to creating economic opportunities for Colombian women artisans through sustainable work practices, and to empower them in their mission to bring "jewelry made from fruit" to women all across the globe, uniting women across cultural and geographic barriers. Please help us to spread the word as we continue to support and empower more women like Janiris, Judy, and Nina. YOUR PURCHASE MAKE A DIFFERENCE.
