(LaRok dress & Rock of Kristia 'Sari' earrings and bracelet)
Feast your eyes on these beautiful and socially responsible pieces gifted to me by Andrea Masakayan, one of the founders of Rock of Kristia! ROK focuses on creating cultural and timeless jewelry; each creation is handcrafted and has a meticulous thought process behind it from the colour of the precious gemstone to the shape of the charm. This particular set consists of bright red bamboo coral and recycled paper rolls, the latter of which was handmade by women in Uganda (this fact STILL boggles my mind). Andrea and her mother Nancy, are local designers with a penchant for making each Rock of Krista piece an individual one! Go here: www.rockofkristia.com.
