Padma Earrings

  • One of the staff's favorite new incorporations, our Padma Teal Earrings are just incredibly pretty... Just look at the pictures. A bit larger than our classic Silver Soleil earrings, the subtle teal coloring of these earrings will just make your eyes pop as it will frame your face perfectly. We especially love the delicate carvings and designs hetched into the earrings. just plain gorgeous crafstmanship.
    These beautiful earrings were made by India artisans from New Delhi. These artisans own the co-op they are members of and have adopted the fair trade principles and standards which helps them on crafting higher quality products and obtaining a better price for their wares as well as safer working conditions and paid time off.
    Vavavida invests abotu 10% of the retail price of each of our product into non-profit programs that work on women empowerment across the world. That's why we work with PCI.org and their Women Empowered program to make a difference in a woman's life.
  • What began as a small artisan group working from tiny, congested work spaces in Old Delhi, the Metal Jewelry Group is now a large community of over 100 artisans focusing on education and improvements in health and environmental impacts.Thanks to the application of fair trade standards the artisans have had an increase in wages and community growth and has allowed them to fulfill their basic requirements for a decent living.

    Due to the sustainable growth of this community, the group has begun keeping their children to schools much longer. The group is very proud that the average literacy of the group has increased significantly. These actions clearly represent a cultural shift in attitude including the female role in a traditional community. The support of female education and the female artisan working openly in this community is fostering an educated and open society.
  • Just a damp paper towel will do to clean those earrings.
