Annie O Designs Review & Giveaway

Share

Seems like I have been on a socially invested & Eco-friendly product kick lately! It is only fitting that today I introduce you to a jewelry line that fits that criteria as well.

Annie O Boutique works with remote artisan communities to design, craft, and market timeless and beautiful accessories. Here is the inspiration behind this boutique in Annie Waterman's own words:

"I first traveled down to Peru about four years ago which is when I was inspired to start annie O. boutique. After months of traveling and research, I came across a women run cooperative, supporting those who are victims of domestic violence. These women are amazing, inspiring, and so dedicated. I felt an instant connection and their traditional embroidery is unforgettable."

How gorgeous is this belt?
I just love all the bright colors in this handbag!
Annie was kind enough to send me a Horn Cuff to check out & giveaway as well!

All horn cuffs are one of a kind and hand crafted by a family business, supporting those living in the slums of Lima. All cuffs are beautiful and unique. They are all hand sheared made out of bulls horn. (Please note that this material has been recycled and does not support the killing of animals). Wide Cuffs: 3"D x 2" W

What I like about this Cuff:
1. Beautiful and natural.
2. I LOVE that we are supporting women in other countries!
3. Eco-friendly & socially responsible company.
4. Super fast shipping.
5. Quality made.
6. Would make a really unique gift!

What I didn't like:
1. There is not anything I didn't like about the company or cuff. Just be sure when you purchase jewelry you always look at the measurements to know if it will fit you.

As a first generation Peruvian-American who just happened upon your organization, I would just love the chance to win so that I could have an opportunity to explain where the gorgeous belt or handbag come from! If I wasn't a social worker who makes a 'social work salary' I would have already purchased both the belt and bag!

Thanks for doing what you do, Annie O!
