THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT
Artisan Organization: Tribe Alive
This ring was fashioned by one of Mi Esperanza’s most high-level jewelry-makers, Sulema. But just a year ago, Sulema was an unemployed seamstress who had never cut metal in her life. Given the opportunity to participate in a large Tribe Alive jewelry production, Sulema forged a formative new notch in her artisan belt.
Soon she won’t be the only one in her family with a diverse skill set. Thanks to her new income, and her belief in a bilingual education, Sulema has recently enrolled her children in a first-rate school where they are learning English.
