Margarita Earrings

Description: Fine silver wires are hand twisted to create a beautiful filigree pattern in an organic leaf shape. We love how these earrings can add a delicate touch to any outfit, and the craftsmanship is outstanding. 

Fit: 1" Long. Fine .990 Silver with Sterling Silver Ear Wires. 

Partner: We partner with Partners for Just Trade, an organization that works directly with makers in Peru and Cambodia.  These earrings are made by Munay Rumi, a jewelry group in Lima, Peru. After many monotonous years in a jewelry factory, working 80-hour weeks for only $115 a month, Eva decided that she deserved better. She convinced the other members of the group, who were also working in the factory, to leave and form their own business. Their first attempt failed and most of them ended up back in factory jobs. But shortly thereafter, Eva heard about a Fair Trade project in Peru and went to see if she could be involved. Eva and her colleagues formed Munay Rumi, and after a year of improving their designs and the samples they’d originally shown, they produced their first jewelry items for export.
