Anika Temple Necklace
The Anika Temple Necklace adds the perfect amount of edge to any look. The delicate design is a mix of traditional Indian techniques 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 while keeping a global audience in mind. Material: Zinc alloy metal + cotton tassels. Measurements: L 17"
