More than just pretty jewelry, these hand-strung glass bead earrings stand for something special. They are handmade by women artisans in the highlands of Guatemala following Fair Trade guidelines. Using Czechoslovakian glass beads, Mayan women craft each earring by hand. They coordinate with our Princesa Beaded Necklace and Princesa Beaded Bracelet. 2" long. Stainless steel
Women artisans from the highlands of Guatemala use traditional beading techniques to create this elegant jewelry. These indigenous women are among the most economically disadvantaged residents of Guatemala. They work under strict fair trade conditions, meaning their wages are 3-5 times higher than average in their economy, their work environment is safe and pleasant, and they receive health care and skills training.
