A handmade multicolored strand of beads featuring three small silk tassels
To numerologists, the number three represents optimism, creativity and broad-minded thinking. Who doesn’t need a little more of each of these? With its three touchable lavender tassels, this necklace surrounds the wearer with the power of three.
Tassels may be trending now, but they’ve been part of great fashion for ages. Ancient kings, priests and military officers wore them as talismans for warding off evil spirits. The tufts of lavender silk suspended from this colorful, loopable necklace will protect the wearer from looking drab. At the same time, it does beautiful things for the women in the Philippines who make these pieces. Working with Brooklyn-based Bluma Project, they earn sustainable incomes, and they can provide for their families with their creations.
Founded by designer Beth Shaeffer, Brooklyn-based Bluma Project features jewelry, textiles and accessories that are handcrafted in developing countries such as Peru, Guatemala, Philippines and India. Shaeffer works with the artisans to encourage an organic and modern feel while staying true to their use of ancient techniques. Blending fashion with culturally inspired aesthetics and globally minded business practices, Bluma Project is dedicated to world travelers everywhere with a sense of wanderlust.
