From Home Decorations to Sustainable Jewelry

By: Tiana Reid - Aug 4, 2013
This top list of beaded social-purpose trinkets ranges from home decorations to sustainable jewelry. An example of the former is 12 Small Things, a social business that was founded by Laurie Kanes. The products are such that they aim to provide a living income for artisans around the world and one product specifically is a wall hanging or a ceremonial banner from Haiti. When it comes to examples of the latter, there are many. Arudo Yat, BADALA, Eden Ministry and the ANDEAN Collection all make jewelry that attempts to adhere to the triple bottom line, or, as it is also known, the three Ps, "people, planet and profit."

Beaded social-purpose trinkets often try to market toward a simultaneous "free spirit" character that is interested in self-branding as ethically minded on a global level.
