Sensational earrings meticulously handcrafted by skilled fair trade artisans in India. Traditionally, generations of the artisans' families have been silversmiths. But they've put their well-honed skills to use on less expensive materials such as the silver-plated brass and copper in these earrings. They're about 1 3/4" long. We have a beautiful cuff to match.
The fair trade company behind this product is dedicated to preserving the indigenous art forms of India by supporting the artisan communities who uphold these traditions. It reinvests all profits--after covering operating costs--back into these communities through micro-finance, health care, and educational programs.
The revenue earned through the sale of these handicrafts is used for need-based development programs throughout India, under the auspices of the All India Movement for Seva (www.aimforseva.org).
