Modern, chic, color-blocked earrings, sure to win you lots of compliments! And then you get to respond by telling them how they were made with local upcycled aluminum and leather scraps in Haiti for a living wage!
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.
The goal is for nothing to be wasted in the leather workshop. Scraps of leather from bags and journals are used in these earrings!
Our jewelry products are hand assembled in-house by our amazing jewelry team!
This product was touched by all three of these workshops! How incredible is that?!
-dimensions: 2" long
-materials: silver-plated stainless steel earring hooks, upcycled aluminum, leather
