These lovely semi hoop earrings are intricately beaded by hand using tiny glass beads woven on to thread and secured on to a rigid brass frame. Light and delicate in earthy ochre tones. For those that like to wander, our new Wanderer collection is inspired by the spirit of adventure.
Handmade by a group of women artisans based in Bawana, a small town in the North West district of Delhi, an area mostly inhabited by migrant workers. Many in this community used to live in informal “slum” settlements in Delhi and have been offered small plots of land in this area.
One artisan that has been making jewellery here for 18 years stated of working for a Fair Trade artisan group: “I myself as well as my other fellow artisans feel more confident and happy. There is also a sense of empowerment. Formerly, we never travelled and now I travel often for the work. I feel now more productive and useful.”
