Cobalt Ombre Earrings
Our Fair Trade Cobalt Ombre Capiz Earrings are a glorious pop of deep blue. Lightweight, delicate capiz shells are washed and soaked, and then dyed in a monochromatic blue ombre. They are then shaped and edged with metal wire. To finish, artisans coat the shells with a finishing varnish. Handmade by a fair trade group that markets handmade goods for small artisan workshops across the Philippines. In addition to being paid a living wage, artisans are helped to develop new product lines, have access to vocational training, educational seminars, and medical and financial assistance.
