Woven Earrings - Turquoise Starburst - Sterling Silver - Unique Handmade Gift
Woven earrings handmade in Colombia by the Wounaan people. The Wounaan use traditional palm leaf threads to sew coiled baskets and are translating their artistry into jewelry.
These one of a kind disc earrings are sewn tight with 1 or 2 stitches per millimeter, and encased in sterling silver. All the workmanship is handcrafted by indigenous artisans who have been displaced by war.
A portion of each purchase is returned to the Wounaan community in Colombia for different projects in education and cultural preservation.
