Camila Freshwater Pearl Earrings – Sterling
Handmade by women artisans in Peru, this perfect simple pearl silver earrings has tons of class. Maybe these earrings could even make their debut on a bride you know in the near future? Contains .925 sterling silver and made using recycled materials.
Our wholesaler, Fair Anita was born out of Peru, in partnership with Anita (who is now one of their beloved artisan partners!). These cooperatives have been prioritizing equity and economic opportunity for marginalized makers from the beginning. The cooperative is housed in an extension of their leaders’, Maritza, home. This workshop is fondly referred to as the “little workshop, with a big heart.” Maritza taught herself how to make jewelry and now works with 11 other women who are able to work in this workshop or at home. The other cooperative they partner with is located just outside the capital city, Lima. They specialize in sterling silver jewelry, a difficult field for women artisans to enter as silver work is traditionally a male domain. They make *every* little piece by hand: right down to the tiny little earring backs. They're exceptional craftspeople, for sure!
