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.

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.
