ABOUT THE ARTISANS

This piece of jewelry was handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in Peru.  There is very little fairly paid work for women in Peru and they often have to travel far from home to work long hours as a housekeeper or in textile factories.  This jewelry cooperative has given the women well paying jobs they can do from home.  Not only are they paid fairly but they receive training in business and design so they can work toward becoming independent business owners.  These women now have the resources to pay for medical care and education for their children in addition to general household expenses.
