The Tiny Heart: WE'VE Built

WE'VE Built

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and WE’VE Built but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #GiftaStory  http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

Today I want to share with you the community of WE'VE Built. I am a huge fan of unique and handmade items, since I think they're so much more special. WE'VE Built uses a collaborative approach to connect artists and buyers. They incorporate sustainability, technology, storytelling and design to create an impact on communities. 






Cardigan-Target Girls (similar Leopard Print Cardigan), Tee-Old Navy, Necklace-c/o WE'VE Built, Old Navy Rockstar Jeans, Boots-Nordstrom (similar Steve Madden Intyce Boots), Bag-Botkier

So how does it work? First, you can pre-order an item on the site. Once it reaches the minimum quantity for pre-order, the artistans will start production on the item. They will send you photos and videos of the process as they create the item...how neat is that? All the items are made with high quality materials that are locally sourced and recycled. 



I am wearing the gorgeous Backstage Necklace by ReStrung Jewelry. They use recycled guitar strings donated by musicians to create each piece by hand. ReStrung Jewelry also supports the The New Orleans Musicians Assistance Foundation. I love knowing the story behind my necklace, which makes it all the more meaningful to me.

WE'VE Built items make wonderful holiday gifts! Come check out WE'VE Built and for more, be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and Google +

  31. Thank you for blogging about WE'VE - they have been so amazing to work with! I am an independent jewelry designer in New Orleans, and I've been creating jewelry with recycled guitar strings for nearly two years. Through my partnership with WE'VE, I've been able to reach new customers all over the world. It's pretty exciting, and I love being able to connect with buyers in a more personal way. And since ReStrung donates a portion of our profits to the New Orleans Musicians Clinic - getting this kind of exposure is so important to us! Thanks again - I LOVE the way you styled our Backstage Necklace!!!
