Product Description

We love the response these stunning earrings get every time we show them off! Carved black horn dotted with a deep purple glass bead atop a dramatic red-bone drop.  Lightweight but long, the beads adorn a 1″ brass earring  wire. Handmade by a deaf Kenyan woman as part of a fair trade initiative. 

The income these artisans earn gives them a way to support their families — to send their children to good schools, to provide better nutrition and healthcare for them. Instead of always feeling like a burden to the family, they move to a position of respect as one who contributes to the household income.

4.75 inches long

Artist's Story:

Sasa Designs, a jewelry business and a subsidiary of D.O.O.R. International, was launched in the fall of 2011, with the goal of providing employment and fair wages to deaf artisans in Kenya.

With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% among the deaf in Kenya, few will have an opportunity to discover their potential, work in dignity and earn a fair wage. Employers are simply not willing to deal with the communication issues of working with the Deaf.

Sasa Designs gives Deaf artisans the chance they’ve been waiting for – the chance to learn new skills, to discover what they are capable of and to feel productive.

The income these artisans earn gives them a way to support their families — to send their children to good schools, to provide better nutrition and healthcare for them. Instead of always feeling like a burden to the family, they move to a position of respect as one who contributes to the household income.
