We love Kora, the L.A.-based jewelry company that creates the most gorgeous handcrafted jewelry from sustainably-sourced horn and recycled materials from artisan communities in Africa. Not only do co-designers Maxandra Short and Amy Walker run their company in a responsible, eco-friendly way, but also the pieces they make are the kind of keepsakes you will love for years to come. They're so forward thinking, in fact, they’ve just debuted their holiday collection for 2011.

Kora Jewelry, available for purchase and pre-order at TenOverSix and KoraDesigns.com.
