For the woman who has her wardrobe game sorted out, but likes to add accessories that are sure conversation starters, all the more so because they're ethically produced. 

This is my outfit strategy: simple, timeless clothing paired with woven bags and handmade jewelry. You get to make a statement without shouting it from the rooftops.

Ethical Gift Guide - artisan made accessories

I've organized this list from low to high price points. Left to right, top to bottom.

1. Dhaka Multipurpose Case, Haushala, $20.00

A versatile piece suitable for carrying your tablet, pens, notebook. Learn more about Haushala here.

2. Black and Gold Earrings, Sela Designs, $24.00

Handmade in the USA with eco-friendly Tagua nuts and 100% of proceeds donated to charity. I have these and I love that they're lightweight and easy to wear. See them worn here.

3. Isiyinga Circle Necklace, Thanda Zulu, $30.00

Made by fairly paid artisans in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, this piece stood out to me because of the tight beadwork and structure. I picture wearing it with a simple u-neck shirt and high waist jeans. It would also pair well with a turtleneck sweater.

4. Zig-Zag Clutch, Zuri Collection, $40.00

Made fairly from wool in Ayacucho Peru in the Northern Andes. I love the pom-poms. And it has a hot pink lining!

5. Ela Bucket Bag, Bloom & Give, $50.00

Handmade by fairly paid artisans in India with 50% of proceeds benefiting education programs, this bag is a work of art. The color and shape is modern, but it uses traditional textile techniques, which make it more timeless.

6. Woven Cotton Crossbody, Purse & Clutch, $99.00

Botanically dyed, hand spun cotton with a leather strap. Made fairly in Ethiopia. The perfect size for a planner, wallet, and phone (my daily essentials).

7. Ortus Opal Ring, Valley Rose Studio, $100.00

A delicate piece with big impact, I would wear this every day to add some symmetry to my wedding rings.

8. Silver Spear Earrings, Sharon Z, $120.00

The quintessential piece for the modern woman, these exude both strength and sensitivity. I have these earrings and never fail to get compliments whenever I wear them (which is often). Made with recycled sterling silver. *Get free shipping with coupon code, STYLEWISEFREESHIPPING
