Capiz Starlight Ornaments from the Philippines!
This elegant set of three handcrafted capiz shell ornaments begins at the bottom of the sea surrounding the Philippine Islands. Divers collect basketfuls of beautiful “windowpane” shells for Artisans like Emelyn, who cut each custom shape and bind them by into delicate gold-plated frames to create these star-inspired ornaments. Every ornament has variations as a part of the Artisan-made charm!
In the Philippines, finding employment as a woman in poverty can be extremely difficult. Poor working conditions, lack of job security, and unfair pay are often the realities. Through your purchase, these women are receiving an income, health care, and social development programs. This allows these women to realize their potential and pursue their dreams in a safe environment. You have the opportunity to change lives!
Watch these ornaments sparkle in the light while you empower a woman in the Philippines!

In many areas of Nepal, women are not considered equal to men and are vulnerable to sex trafficking. But the women who make these ornaments are earning an income and learning entrepreneurship – giving them confidence to break social norms! Every purchase helps provide them with education, jobs skills training, and seminars about health, nutrition, and women’s rights. Your purchase helps create social change for women in Nepal.

Mini Stars of Haiti from Haiti!
This set of four upcycled cereal box ornaments will be the shining mini stars of your holiday décor! Each ornament is hand-rolled by mothers in Haiti, where our mission to help mamas keep their babies began. Every ornament has variations as a part of the Artisan-made charm!
Haiti endured one of this century’s worst natural disasters when a major earthquake devastated this nation that’s home to almost 500,000 orphans. The majority of the orphans have not been orphaned by parental deaths or natural disasters, but by parents who gave them up simply because they could not feed them. The group we work with is an "un-orphanage" and is helping with the orphan crisis by providing parents with sustainable business through creating designs that do good.
Deck the halls with these handcrafted ornaments and empower a woman in Haiti!
