Light Gives Heat

 I absolutely love Light Gives Heat and their super cute jewelry!  

I have several pieces from Light Gives Heat, but my all time favorite piece is "Blossom".  Whenever I wear it I am always getting compliments on it. 
It's super cute and can pretty much be worn with anything.  Most of the time I am wearing it with a t-shirt and it totally dresses it up.

What I really love about the company is they are creating jobs for over 120 women in Uganda so that they are able to provide for their family.  It's amazing how something that we take for granted can make such an impact on a lives in Uganda by simply providing a job and creating a sustainable life.  


You can visit their website here and check out all of their great products.

Here's a little more info taken from their website:

Light Gives Heat works to create world-changing opportunities in both Africa and America.  

In Uganda we partner with local Artisans to create consistent incomes where there once was none. Through our Brands SUUBI and EPOH, our In-Country Staff create long-term partnerships with Artisans to create beautiful handmade products that will soon grace the shoulders, necks, and wrists of fashion conscious consumers in America and beyond. 
In America LGH is committed to not only offering beautiful products and a way for people to support our Artisans in Africa, but LGH is also committed to creating experiences that call all of us to look outside ourselves, to find Beauty in the Risk , and to pursue big, beautiful, crazy dreams.
