Knots and Stones Horn Cuff Bracelet Giveaway

Congrats to Charlene, winner of the Knots & Stones Horn Cuff Bracelet Giveaway!

Eco-fashion can extend to all areas of your wardrobe, which is why I'm happy to share Knots & Stones through this special Horn Cuff Bracelet Giveaway.  Knots & Stones offers up some beautiful sustainability in its jewelry made of all natural materials such as tagua nuts, acai, and other South African rainforest items, all responsibly collected.

I've been wearing the horn cuff (pictured left), and it's been a fun and colorful addition to my accessories.  Great with short sleeves for summer, the bracelet is adjustable and could easily fit any size wrist.  The craftsmanship is sturdy and carefully done, so I'm sure I'll be able to enjoy this piece for years to come.  And I love that it's a truly unique piece that won't be showing up in every shop at the mall!

But perhaps the thing that gives this and other Knots & Stones jewelry such a touch of the special and unique is knowing they've got the flair and craftsmanship of South American artisans.  Working with people in Peru, Colombia, and Equador, the company believes strongly in free trade and sustainable business practices.  The end result are some beautiful sustainable pieces.

To let you see for yourself, we're giving away one Horn Cuff Bracelet ($25.50 retail).

Feel free to gain multiple entries to win, and don't forget your contact info:

1.  Visit Knots & Stones.  Come back here and tell me what else you liked or learned about them.

2.  Blog about, Twitter, and/or Facebook a link to this giveaway; come back here and tell me you did it.

3.  Subscribe to An Uncommon Thread by email in the right-hand column.  Leave a comment here telling me you did it.

A winner will be randomly selected May 23 and contacted via email.  The winner will receive a Horn Cuff Bracelet.
