THE STORY BEHIND THE PRODUCT

Artisan Organization: Matr Boomie

Country: India

Ornate jewelry is a proud cultural tradition in India and every piece in our collection hints at a deeper story. In the sprawling urban center of Old Delhi, our partner group of nearly 80 artisans delicately bends, etches, beads and polishes jewelry from stones, glass, upcycled metal and wires, seeds, and other materials. However, these artisans are not only limited to jewelry. Many of them go on to create other products such as frames, ornaments, and hair accessories made out of bone. They inherit their craftsmanship from their ancestors, who were master jewelers. 

In 2009 we were contacted by Sana, the young daughter of an artisan in this mostly Muslim group, who was dissatisfied with the exploitative treatment of her family and community by local tradesmen. Since our fair trade partnership began, their earnings have doubled, they have upgraded to better workspace, and children are staying in school longer. In fact, Sana became the first girl in her village to attend college!

These earrings are large but they are very light. The blue adds a beautiful touch to the silver.

BEAUTIFUL - These earrings are large, but I LIVE for large earrings! Light as a feather, beautiful design/color, and well made! If you are wanting medium to small earrings, this is not it. Definitely statement earrings!

Earrings - Blue

I didn’t realize how large they were either. I like smaller ones, but I may have someone that I can give them too for a gift. Thank you.

Pretty but gigantic

I got these earrings in silver and they're really pretty. But I didn't realize how huge they are. You would have to be a much bigger person than I am to pull them off. They aren't heavy but they would work much better as a necklace than as earrings. I'm going to try to turn each one into a necklace because I really like the design.
