Last week, I had a TON to say about my Yala Bamboo Dreams Dress. It is my new go to, travel friendly, product I can feel good about, dress. If you look closely, you can also the amazing Yala Nugget Necklace from the Free Soul Collection. This necklace is stunningly simple with beads that add just the right amount of sparkle to any outfit. This necklace can be dressed up for dresses and business events, or dressed down for jeans and everyday errands. With all of the pieces in the entire collection ranging $14 -$48, there is a beautiful piece that fits your budget. Why the name Free Soul? What does this jewelry “make a difference?” That’s where this really gets good.
This jewelry comes from Nomadic Gypsies in India. Yala partnered with a US non-profit agency, The Nest, that helps women artists around the world create successful small businesses through education and training. For the Free Soul Collection, Indian women who usually spend a majority of the year traveling away from their children to sell their jewelry at festivals, instead continue their craft and spend more time at home. A portion of the sales goes to build a school for their children. This isn’t just jewelry that looks gorgeous, compliments any outfit, and is affordable. Yes, it is all of those things, but jewelry in the Free Soul Collection is also jewelry that makes a difference. It improves the lives of others literally on the other side of the world.
Thanks to Yala, now through February 27, we’re hosting a $75 Yala gift card giveaway AND there is a coupon code that you can use to get your own piece from the Free Soul Collection. The Free Soul Collection is definitely a product line… and more importantly an incredible global partnership, that you should check out.
