Josie Kay Photography bio picture
  • Hey there! I’m Josie Kay

    American Poet, and one of my favorites, Mary Oliver asked; “So tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one WILD + PRECIOUS life?” Her question resonated with me personally and professionally and those two words became a mantra to drive my life and work.
    Personally, I am in love with the idea of life being WILD + PRECIOUS. Because it is. It’s fast + slow, big + small, crazy + simple…wild + precious. Life is full of these moments. Everyone has a story and I’m here to tell it.

31 bits.

This company has my heart. I truly admire the work that they are doing. I first read about 31 bits, on the lovely Promise Tangeman’s blog, she was also featured in 31 Bits new collection, The Haven.

31 bits is a jewelry company, but not just any jewelry company. These beautiful beads are handmade by women in Uganda. 31 bits is not only equipping these women with business skills and sustainable incomes, but goes a step further by providing programs on education, health and finances. They are truly changing these ladies’ lives and making a difference –all with FASHION! What could be better?! Check out their website, read the full story, and most importantly… SHOP!

 

I loved opening my package! Their beads are made from recycled paper, as well as the tags in their packaging. Loved the details!

Each purchase comes with a card featuring the designers of your collection, then you can go to their website and read about their individual stories! I love that I have a unique piece of jewelry made by a real person with a story.

My beautiful new necklace, is DAWN from The Haven collection. I love the subdued rose colored beads, and especially the leather strap ties.
