Sick of giving the same old flowers and candy to your special someone? Why not give from the heart with these Valentine’s Day gifts that give back?
We carry countless fair trade items from around the world, but we think the Brass Images line is especially exquisite, making it a great gift for Valentine’s Day (or any occasion…like a Tuesday).
Based in South Africa, Brass Images produces handcrafted brass and copper jewelry. Artisans apply high heat to these metals to produce ruby red copper and antiqued brass finishes without the use of paints or dyes. Gemstone accents add a colorful touch to the beautiful ethnic designs. These pieces have a unique yet polished look that can be dressed up or down and are sure to make a statement this Valentine’s day–because nothing says, “I Love You” like gorgeous jewelry that supports artisans in South Africa!
Note: the beautiful metal leaf sculpture featured in these photos is also for sale!
