the moral wardrobe: Candorra Artisans Bangles

I’m not sure whether to feel lucky or concerned that the weather’s still so nice in early December. It’s highly likely that this is a sign of things to come on the climate change front, but I’m still a bit relieved that I don’t have to endure all the cold of winter just yet.
It also gives me the opportunity to show off my new bangles – provided for review from Candorra Artisans – sans gloves. Candorra was founded by Amanda Thornton in early 2014 and began working with artisans in Sri Lanka in June of that year. Candorra specializes in stunning, hand crafted jewelry and accessories made primarily by women in Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Northern India, and South Africa. Artisans are paid up front and receive a living wage. (Amanda shared the brand story on Tuesday, so I recommend you check this post for more background information.)


I’ve said before that I’m not much of a bracelet wearer, but these are the sorts of pieces you keep and hand down to loved ones as the years pass. The wire is plated in 24k gold with about 7 times the gold content of traditional plated wire since they’re able to plate in house. There are tons of different stones (and world coins! – my coins are from Finland) to choose from and most options fall at or under $40.00 at regular price (plus, they’re currently on sale). I’m wearing the Small Pyrite and the Gold Coin bangles.

Ethical Details: 
Top – thrifted; Cardigan – thrifted; Jacket – secondhand via thredup; Boots – old; Bracelets – c/o Candorra Artisans

Overall, I’m really impressed with the quality and craftsmanship of the bangles and I love the structure and mission of Candorra Artisans. Small-wristed folks may need to pull the bracelets up their arms a bit to make them feel more secure, as there is a danger of them slipping off, but that’s to be expected with bangles. I’m looking forward to wearing these hiked up my arm with a sundress in the summertime.

For a limited time, all Candorra Artisans bangles are 40% off on their website.
