The 2015 World Vision Gift Catalog contains more than 250 poverty-fighting gifts, ranging in price from $16 to $39,000, that improve the quality of life for struggling children and families in the U.S. and around the world. This holiday season, you can give help where it is most needed and receive beautiful handcrafted jewelry for themselves or their loved ones. There are gifts for all budgets. All of them are made by communities around the developing world and the artisanship is simply stunning!
Here are some of my favorites:

Balinese Multi-Strand Necklace – This beautiful, draped beaded necklace is handmade by Balinese artisans in a project that helps children in Bali receive an education.
The Balinese necklace happens to be a personal favorite of mine because World Vision sent me a sample necklace so I could check out the quality of the gift items. I think this necklace is quite stunning! I took some photos so you can all get a closer look:
This necklace will leave you feeling pretty on the outside and feeling good on the inside, because the money raised from the purchase of these hand-crafted gifts goes to the Where Most Needed fund, which supports a variety of World Vision’s programs around the world.
