We just received our first few pieces from The Andean Collection's new Cayambe Line and one that I'm especially crazy for is this awesome Colorblock Acai Rope necklace! We previously carried the solid Acai Rope Necklace, however I think that these new colors are so much fun and the mix with the gold beads gives it a much lighter look. My favorite thing about this necklace is that it's so transitional! It looks completely different depending upon how many times you want to wrap it:
wrapped 4 times....
... 3 times...
... 2 times (my personal favorite look)...
I personally think that wearing it unwrapped (one loop) looks a little extreme,
but if you knot the middle like I did here it creates a very dramatic lariat-type look!
You can also loop one end through the other for a completely different style!
We also have this rad necklace in a pacific/ turquoise combo!

Best of all - The Andean Collection is a Fair Trade jewelry line. So, besides looking great, the sale of these pieces also provides jobs, fair wages, housing etc. to skilled artisans in Ecuador who handcraft each item.
