Merina Hoops -- Jade Tapestry

$ 28.00

Each of the women we work with showcases different technical strengths overtime. The Merina earrings are named after an exuberant woman with an unmatchable spirit. Merina perfected the techniques for this hoop design first so they're named in her honor. Czech glass, African jade and a blend of seed beads make these earrings almost as beautiful as the woman they're named after. The Merina hoops measure 1.25 inches in width and 1.75 inches in height, hanging from a 1/2 inch ear wire.

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.
