If you have never heard of Ten Thousand Villages
you should really check it out...
At Ten Thousand Villages, [they] work with over 100 artisan groups in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America to bring you fair trade jewelry, home decor, gifts and more. As one of the world's oldest and largest fair trade organizations, [they] build long-term relationships with artisans that are based on mutual understanding and respect. Fair trade enables artisans to earn a fair wage and provides the opportunity for a better quality of life.
This brass and enamel nativity is from artisans in India

The Capiz Dove Ornament made with capiz shell from the Philippines

And for some reason I am really drawn to this
art deco beaded bracelet from Guatemala
