I’ve been a long-time fan of the Faire Collection, formerly known as The Andean Collection. I’ve followed their story since pretty much the beginning, back in 2008.

Faire Collection works with artisans from around the world, including Ecuador, Peru, Swaziland and Vietnam, to create beautiful handcrafted jewelry and accessories. They work with a variety of natural, sustainable and recycled materials to create unique jewelry designs.

Many fair trade companies can come off as hippie-chic, with maybe a little bit more “hippie” than “chic”. One thing I love about Faire Collection, however, is that their designs are beautiful, modern and wearable. Design should always come first, because let’s face it… if it’s ugly, no one is going to wear it, no matter how great the cause.

Faire Collection has just launched their new Spring/Summer ’14 line, dubbed Horizons. The new collection embraces the spirit of world travel, mixed in with a big dose of 1950s inspired glamour and sophistication. My favorite pieces from the line? I love their geometric artisan made jewelry, handcrafted in Vietnam.
