Santa Isla’s unreal selection of beaded chokers are full of explosive color combos that can’t help but make you happy. Each piece is entirely handmade in Colombia by the Embera Chami, an indigenous ethnic group with a long history of displacement in their society. In 2011 the Colombian Constitutional Court declared the Embera at risk of extinction, making Santa Isla’s mission to empower this community of artisans that much more important. With some pieces taking over 50 hours to complete, you can proudly wear the beauty of the dedicated craftsmanship and subsequesntly embody the Embera’s belief that women carry the weight of the world. Adorn yourself below.

In her new book The Women Who Made New York, writer and reporter Julie Scelfo traces unknown histories of famous and lesser-known women who made the city a cultural capital. She profiles women like Yoko Ono, civil rights activist Ella Baker, Brooke Astor, socialite A’Lelia Walker, and Patti Smith. “Many are famous, like Billie Holiday and Eleanor Roosevelt,” Scelfo writes in the book’s introduction. “Others led quieter, private lives, but were just as influential — like Emily Warren Roebling, who completed the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge after her engineer husband became ill. … This book is merely a first step, a history that is unavoidably complete.”
