There's something sacred about handmade jewelry. Haitian artisans crafted these earrings from discarded metal oil drums. Only craftsman with vision could transform steel into small wonders of art.
As fair trade partners, we know it's more than a pair of earrings. It's recycling done right. Here's to the men and women of Haiti who use their hammer, chisel, and imagination to prove that some things are better the second time around. If you're anything like us, you love that no two handmade items are exactly alike. And, better still, that your purchase directly supports these gifted Haitian artisans along with Freedom House children's home - an orphanage for "restaveks," former child slaves.
