Naturally beautiful materials make summer sizzle!

Fashion that makes you feel as good on the inside as you look on the outside? Hmmmm… I’m all for that! And feeling great abut your purchases and looking fab at the same time is exactly what you get when you shop at Five Accessories!

The Five Accessories mission is to create income generating programs for individuals in five different countries, donate a large portion of sales to worthy charitable causes and foster the use of sustainable material in fashion. So, in the “spirit of Five,” I’ve chosen my five favorites from the firm.

First is the Wood and Pearl Bracelet from Bali. Oval-shaped wood sections are united with small beads in between and finished with a circular shaped pearl overlay. This bracelet is from the Bali Collection and I love the natural materials and chunky feel. Retail $10.00

Next is the Half Moon Clutch. This clutch has a distinctive shape, cute flower accent, and is constructed out of eco-friendly bamboo and wood. Fully lined, the bag also has an inside pocket, and metal clasp closure. You can even custom order special flowers to match an existing outfit!  Was $45.00 NOW ON SALE! $35.00

Another fave is the naturally beautiful Kuta Wood Necklace. This fair trade bead necklace is handmade near Kuta, Bali of 1/2 inch round wooden balls. I love the simplicity of the design. This necklace would make a nice transition piece as fall approaches! Was $20.00 NOW ON SALE! $15.00

When I saw the Brown Coconut Bag, I knew I’d found something really special. This beautiful coconut shell clutch has a satin lining, pocket and metal clasp. Best yet, $5.00 from each sale goes to support schoolchildren in Bali! The bag is available in three sizes:

Small: 8″ wide by 6″ tall, Was $40.00 NOW ON SALE $35.00
Medium: 10″ wide by 6″ tall, Was $45.00 NOW ON SALE $40.00
Large: 12″ wide by 6″ tall, Was $50.00 NOW ON SALE $45.00

Finally, the Brown Shell Bracelet is one of the newest fair trade pieces from Five Accessories. Crafted of brown and white shell the bracelet is handmade by artisans in Bali following fair trade practices. Was $15.00 NOW ON SALE $10.00

Of course, these are just my favorites. To see more gorgeous pieces — from necklaces to beads, bags to bangles, rings and more — visit Five Accessories.
