Pink Glass and Wire Earrings
These delicate pink glass and wire earrings are handcrafted in India by artisans working with TARA Projects, which stands for "Trade Alternative Reform Action." The Delhi-area organization "works with hundreds of artisans who create some of the major handicraft lines of North India to sell their products internationally. TARA is one of the pioneering Indian organizations in the field of fair wages, non-formal education programs for children and women, health and environmental awareness and further development for its member artisans. Artisan benefits from TARA include medical insurance, interest-free loans and advances, a savings program and skills training." Many thanks to Ten Thousand Villages for this information about TARA. Fair trade certified.
