Malachite Hoop Earrings

$ 28.00

We've been blown away by the response to these hoops! Designed around the timeless appeal of malachite - one of East Africa's richest natural stones, these hoops will inspire others to ask you, "what's the story behind those earrings!?" We hope you'll use the combination of glass, brass and malachite beads to share about the women of Sasa, who make each pair with love and attention to detail. Hoops measure roughly 2" in length and are finished with a brass kidney wire closure.

Sasa Designs by the Deaf launched in Fall 2011 with the goal of providing employment and fair wages to Deaf artisans in Kenya. With an estimated unemployment rate of 85% among the Deaf in Kenya, few will have an opportunity to discover their potential, work in dignity and earn a fair wage. Employers are simply not willing to deal with the communication issues that arise working with the Deaf.

Sasa Designs gives Deaf artisans the chance they’ve been waiting for – the chance to learn new skills, to discover what they are capable of and to feel productive. A subsidiary of DOOR International, Sasa Designs by the Deaf provides training and employment for Deaf women who have faced a lifetime of discrimination. For the first time, they are recognized for their potential, and not for their inability to communicate with the world at large.
