The Product:

These are the quintessential earrings. Get a brighter pair like blue, green or red to add a pop of color or keep it minimal with black or cream. Or get a few pairs so you have them on deck for whatever each day brings!

Fun fact: These are named after a neighborhood in our beloved city where we live and work, Gonaives!

The Story:

Over the course of several days, locally sourced dry clay is made into a moldable form, kneaded into shape, kiln-fired, glazed and fired again. The group started with just 2 people who used 50 cents to buy some clay and a bowl to use as a kiln. Today, our clay group, made up of 14 people, supports up to 20 families in Gonaives. A true redemptive story of starting with what you have and watching it multiply!

Our jewelry products are handmade in-house by our amazing jewelry team.

This product was touched by both of these workshops!

The Details:

-materials: stainless steel earstud, clay
