Have you heard about the Handcrafted Collection from West Elm?  I randomly stumbled upon it while scouring for home accessories on their website.  As a part of this collection, they’re collaborating with 20 different artisan groups around the world (from Philippines to Mississippi) to develop handcrafted products that directly benefit the makers and their families & communities.

I love that tiered chandelier made from capiz shells! It’s organic yet elegant at the same time.  Here are a few more of my favorites:
