ABOUT THE ARTISANS
This jewelry was handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in Colombia. There are now over 500 artisans working in the cooperatives. They are paid excellent wages and some have received micro loans to start their own businesses. The 50-year Colombian civil war devastated the country and these fair trade ventures are helping families rebuild as well as promoting ecological sustainability.
