2) Mexican Filigree Earrings - These intricate filigree earrings were handmade in Oaxaca, Mexico, and are from a small town in a municipality called Tehuantepec. The traditional garb of this region consists of heavily embroidered garments accessorized with large amounts of gold jewelry....often gold filigree earrings like these! Frida Kahlo, the famous Mexican painter, was my inspiration for going to Oaxaca. During her lifetime she adopted the traditional Tehuana attire as a means of showing her solidarity with the strong women of this matriarchal Zapotec society. I was pleased to find pieces that were representative of what she may have worn. These earrings were created by the hands of older artisans since many of the young people in the pueblo don't have interest in learning this art. They are brilliant in every respect.

- Latch hook pierced backs
- Hand filigree work, Bathed in Gold to create the bright traditional finish
- Handcrafted in a small community called Juchitan in the State of Oaxaca, Mexico
3) Polished brass cuff handmade in Cambodia - The artisan who made it is part of an organization called Rajana. It was founded in 1995 by the British NGO Southern Asian Outreach in order to provide opportunities for young people to learn marketable skills, earn fair wages, and climb out of the cycle of poverty. I was in Siem Riep, Cambodia in 2016. One of my all time favorite travel destinations.
Polished Brass Bangle made with up-cycled bullet cartridges.
