I recently ran across a site called WOW Imports, a Company who sells African fair trade bead and wire art as well as other imported items. As I was perusing the website, I thought, my readers would love these products.
The fair trade items help disadvantage African artisans, mainly from Zimbabwe and South African townships, to create a better lives for themselves. Some of the other items are made of recycled materials.
So, here are my new finds:
I fell in love with the above Israeli recycled aluminum clock. Update: It is no longer available.
It is 8” by 15” and sells for $25.00. It comes in 4 different varieties. If clocks are not your thing, then maybe you would like the following items:

It is great for those who do not want to cut down trees for the holidays or don’t have room for a tree. Priced at $19.99. See the other Christmas tree designs.
Handmade wire wrapped & beaded serving pieces – salad servers, cake knives are great hostess gifts. Pictured above is a 4 piece handmade stainless steel glass nugget & wire wrapped fork set. Eating cake will never look so good.
