You’re invited to the new 31 Bits Warehouse party tonight from 7 to 10 p.m. in Costa Mesa. There’s much to celebrate. It’s 31 Bits two-year anniversary, it’s just launched “Elasticity”, a new line of jewelry made with elastic so you can wear it several different ways. And 31 Bits new winter line just debuted at Westerly in Corona del Mar.
The party includes an ice cream trick at 7 p.m., DJ Flo starting at 9 p.m., a photobooth, giveaways from Reef and 31 Bits, plus fun Twister competitions. It’s also a celebration of the 63 Ugandan women who hand make beautiful jewelry out of recycled paper. 31 Bits is still a small, grassroots company. Just five women run operations in Costa Mesa and they take turns going back and forth to Uganda overseeing the program of providing educational training, financial training, and the know-how so that they can start their own businesses.
