Happy Friday!

I've got an uplifting and inspirational post to share with you this morning ~ it's all about beautiful jewelry and an equally beautiful cause.

31 Bits is a socially responsible organization that uses fashion and design to empower women in Uganda to rise above poverty.  The jewelry is made out of 100% recycled paper by women in Uganda, giving them the chance to earn an instant income as well as providing them with different development programs so that they can become self-sustainable.

The 31 Bits designs are not only eco chic and charitable ~ they're stylish and affordable too. And they even have a gorgeous wedding collection!

A team of creatives got together recently to produce an inspiration shoot to celebrate the launch of 31 Bits new 2012 wedding collection. With Summer Watkins of Grey Likes Weddings doing the styling and the incredible Jasmine Star behind the lens, you just know it's going to be utterly fabulous!

How outrageously chic is this shoot?

The strapless dresses (short and long), the high bun and the bold red lips and nails all compliment 31 Bits delicately hued, gold flecked necklaces and bracelets perfectly. You know how much I adore a bride in a statement necklace, well why not make a truly wonderful statement by wearing 31 Bits?

They'd also make great bridesmaids' gifts too! Or any kind of gift, for that matter.

I've got my eye on Woven Delight.
