This fair trade necklace giveaway was brought to you by Gandhara Designs.  All opinions are mine.

Beautiful jewelry that is fair trade and high quality is hard to come by.  It is very hard to tell if something has been created by workers who are treated ethically and fairly.  Gandhara Designs is a Canadian boutique that specializes in one-of-a-kind, heirloom quality artisinal jewelry hand-crafted from artisans all over the world.  These pieces are unique and can be passed on throughout the generations.

Gandhara Designs works directly with the artisan whenever possible to purchase their crafts at market value.  This empowers artisans to end their own poverty and become agents of social change.

Sky McLaughlin, the founder of Gandhara Designs, has seen first hand how important it is to empower the people in other countries, espcially the women.  It has been her goal to bring the beautiful hand crafted pieces from around the world to Western consumers.  Sky is doing a wonderful thing for the people of this world.  You can help her cause and purchase a unique gift for someone else or a beautiful piece for yourself.  How special for a small piece of jewelry to have a such an awesome story behind it!

Check out all of the amazing handcrafted jewelry and accessories at the Gandhara Designs website and sign up for the newsletter while you're there.

Sky wants to give one Life With Captain Fussybuckets reader their choice of the beautiful Ting Ting necklace from Kenyan artisans.  The winner will get to choose between a blueberry, apple, or cherry colored necklace, valued at $63 USD.  Subscribe to the Gandhara Designs newsletter and complete any other optional entries and you're entered to win.  Giveaway will end at 11:00 PM Central Time on August 24, 2013, so make sure to get all of your entries in before then.  AND it's open WORLDWIDE!
