This statement collar necklace is anything but understated. It is adorned with a cotton tassel that lays down the back and the flexible chain elegantly moves as you do. This edgy necklace is a mix of traditional Indian designs and modern bohemian. This Fair Trade collection of elegant, statement jewelry is handcrafted by a cooperative of women artisans located in rural areas around Delhi, Ghaziabad and Meerut India. The women, who were previously unemployed, are empowered with the means to earn a fair wage. They are able to work from home where they can also look after their children. The co-op doesn’t just give the artisans a source of income, but also provides respect in a society where women are viewed as second-class citizens. The artisans draw inspiration from traditional Indian jewelry designs and strive to retain the innate nature of each raw material.
