ABOUT THE ARTISANS

This piece of jewelry was handmade in a fair trade women's cooperative in India by courageous female artisans who are now free.  The organization that works with them donates 100% of the proceeds to providing a safe haven for the women and offering healthcare, education, job training and employment. The women are learning a trade that empowers them to remain free forever from abuse.  They are paid wages well above even traditional fair trade standards. This is truly a purchase with a purpose.
