Solstice Fringe Earrings

$ 28.00

FALL COLLECTION 

This earthy collection is inspired by the rich God-colors we find in creation as the globe yields a harvest palette of rich, ripe hues. Before fall ushers in the darkness of winter, it gives us an opportunity to enjoy the fruits of our labor, and to pull out a chair so we can share our bounty with others. This handmade collection—the fruit of artisan labor—not only puts food on the table for Kenyans and refugee makers empowered by Mercy House Global; it also serves as a reminder to share the light in the darkness.

“You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine!” Matt. 5:15-16 (MSG)

ARTISAN DETAILS: Have Hope 

A couple of months ago, a woman just like you sat in her home in a Kenyan slum, and she held this very pair of earrings in her hands. She carefully sorted colors and worked pliers and created something for you to wear. She smiled with satisfaction when she completed the earrings; the same way you smiled when you put them on. This mother made these beautiful pieces to protect her family from poverty. She made them for you. The women of Have Hope began meeting together in 2010 to establish a sense of home where there was none. Today, these women are proudly part of the working class in Kenya and have become skilled jewelry makers.
