Quite the striped statement, these beaded earrings have been intricately woven by artisan women in Guatemala. Despite their dramatic size, they are lightweight and easy to wear.

These earrings are made by a group of women in Guatemala, led by Julia (the lovely woman you can see on the loom in the pictures) with the artisan group, Fair + Simple.
The heart and soul of Fair + Simple is targeted job creation for people in marginalized areas of need. And not just any job, but good jobs with fair living wages in safe work environments which respect and dignify the producer or artisan rather than exploit and compromise. They believe that the people who make the products in their collections are the heartbeat of the company, not just a means to an end.
