Don’t you hate when you’re obsessed with a totally unique statement piece but feel guilty spending on another accessory? Ashley Pittman is an innovative fair trade jewelry designer who offers beautifully crafted pieces while giving back. Each piece is made from indigenous Kenyan materials including horn, bronze and East Africa-mined semi-precious stones; and 15% of the proceeds from each sale are donated to feed children in Kenya. Here are a few of my favorite Ashley Pittman pieces:
