Save the Bridesmaids Gift, Save the World!

Okay so that's a little Heroes'ism...

Oprah and Macy's have teamed up and have these fantastically beautiful O Bracelets! Gorgeous gemstones and exclusive designs are just the beginning of the O Bracelets' appeal. Each is handmade in Rwanda by women whose lives—disrupted by poverty, HIV/AIDS and the 1994 genocide—are changing dramatically because of the income earned while making the bracelets.
Born out of a unique partnership between O, The Oprah Magazine, Fair Winds Trading and Macy's, the first O Bracelets were introduced in May of 2007 to an immediate, overwhelming response.

The new collection includes exquisite designs by jewelry designer Christine Brandt; artist and AIDS activist Mary Fisher (who designed the first O Bracelets); and artist and president of Fair Winds Trading, Inc., Dean Ericson. Fair Winds Trading—the same talented, compassionate bunch behind the Rwandan Path to Peace Baskets—are involved throughout the entire process, working directly with the beaders from training through production and beyond.

I think they are just beautiful! It would make a great gift, and you'd being doing some good - which is what it's all about right?

These would make a great gift...for myself! hehe. Thanks for sharing this! I really enjoy knowing that these women are actually making the bracelets and that hopefully it is helping them to live much better lives now.
