During the dog days of summer, here are some cool green discoveries that go so well with hot days and nights ...

The Sheba Pendant is a great "date necklace" made of wood, silk and glass, that dresses up a floaty summer top or colorful maxi-dress. Dori Csengeri's fabulous jewelry designs are impeccably rendered by women artisans in Israel.

These cute, light and surprisingly durable Organza/ Raw Silk purses from Green Gecko were handmade by Cambodian artisans. So great with breezy summer dresses.

At night when the temperature drops, reach for this light, elegant Ethiopian silk scarf. Wear it gathered around your neck or toss around your shoulders. This beautiful natural-silk scarf is handspun by the Creative Women artisan's collective in Ethiopia, and comes in five colors to complement any outfit.

Beach Bag Bingo: tote your towel, sunblock and beach read in style with another Creative Women offering: a durable, eco-friendly textile tote. These dramatic bags have a gorgeous natural sheen and are built to last.

Rainforest Native's simply gorgeous five-strand rainforest necklace is crafted by Amazonian artists from white acai, sterling silver, and sustainably harvested rainforest wood. A wear-anywhere necklace that can go from bikinis to cocktail dresses, it looks so great against a summer tan.
