ABOUT THE ARTISANS
The artisans who make this jewelry work in a fair trade cooperative in the Horn of Africa (they prefer to keep the exact location private). The group is comprised of single women between the ages of 19 and 34, who come from vulnerable, low income communities and have little formal education. The women report that before they had the opportunity to make the jewelry they were at home with nothing to do and no way to help support their families. They now have full-time employment and provide the majority of income for their families. Some of the women are sending their younger sisters to school as well. They are hardworking and determined, and many have dreams of becoming successful business owners.
