IT'S INTERNATIONAL WOMEN'S DAY!!!

Carolina Locker

Today we are celebrating the face of the the real "Colombian Girl" behind the scenes, who makes every item, by hand!  She is the reason this jewelry exists, born out of socio-economic disadvantage as a means of survival.  But in the struggle, she has emerged beautiful, courageous, and ALIVE, and this jewelry echoes her story and inner beauty in a genuine and tangible manner. Indeed, it is the same struggle women all over the world endure, and yet emerge victorious, realizing dreams they never thought possible.  These women artisans, just like the jewelry they create, truly are fearfully and wonderfully made.  And we endeavor to help them in their plight, to reveal the incredible jewelry they produce to the rest of the world, allowing them to reap their due reward!  

Together we empower them!

Meet Our Newest Colombian Women Artisans!

Meet Janiris, Martha, Judy, and Nina, our newest Colombian women artisans!

Meet Janiris, Martha, Judy, and Nina, our newest Colombian women artisans!

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.

Thank you America for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.  May God bless America!

Today we are thankful to be an American based company, where the dream to start a business and use it to help others, is still alive and thriving.  We are thankful for the millions of brave man and women that guard our shores and continue to fight today, to keep us safe and free.  Today we are thankful for our many customers, who live in a society that allows them to purchase whatever goods and services they so please, and in doing so, allow small businesses like us to expand and improve our products.  We are thankful for the little things, hamburgers and swimming pools, corn on the cob and sparklers, that make this day special ... may we never forget what Independence Day really means, and may we always fight to end tyranny and injustice, on our land and abroad.  May God bless America!
