Description

These gorgeous turquoise drop earrings are handmade with beautiful polymer clay beads crafted by women as part of the Samunnat Nepal project. The intricate designs are not painted on but made by arranging different coloured pieces of polymer clay to create a design that runs longways.  This is called a cane and it is based on the millefiori technique that people may be familiar with seeing in Venetian glass.

The Samunnat Nepal project was set up in 2007 to help support women who have experienced violence and poverty by providing legal support, income generation training, counselling and mentoring.  Samunnat means to flourish and this is the hope for the women who are given support. About 15 women work together in the colourful Samunnat studio creating the beautiful polymer clay beads which they sell to create an income to fund other project activities.

Turquoise drop earrings features:

  • Samunnat polymer clay beads
  • Turquoise spacer beads
  • High quality stainless steel earring wires
  • Suitable for sensitive ears
  • Approximately 3cm drop
