The Product:

This earring just feels like Friday! Fun, bold, and ready for a good time! We’ve updated and upgraded what was previously our Leather Drop Earring into this post earring that is great for Fridays or any day of the week when you want to spice things up!

The Story:

All of our jewelry incorporates upcycled and/or local materials. This reflects our values of positively impacting the earth and the local economy of Haiti, as well as the redemption of giving old things a 2nd Story. Our jewelry team has become experts in their craft since 2011 when we started out teaching the skills, crowded together on children’s school benches in Jubilee!

Local materials and local skills are married to make our beautiful aluminum pieces! Recycled aluminum is melted and poured into sand molds to set by makers who have been working with aluminum to make cooking pots for years. Each piece is labor-full. Which we love, because more labor means more people with jobs!

All of our leather is sourced in-country as a by-product of food. Our leather products are handmade in “The Brothers” Workshop in Jubilee, a small developing community by the sea.

This product was touched by all 3 of these incredible workshops!

The Details:

-Length: 4”

-materials: gold-plated brass ear post, upcycled aluminum circle, and leather drop shape
