Afghan Lapis Star Earrings
These elegant Star Open Hoop Earrings offer an alternative silhouette to the classic gold hoop. From the cutting the lapis and turquoise stone, to molding the open hoop shape, every aspect of these stunning earrings is crafted by hand.
In war-torn Afghanistan, the non-profit, women-led organization Aayenda aims to set the foundation for long-term, stable economic growth by opening an international market for young Afghan female jewellers—likely the only work from which they are not barred. In addition to training in the art of metalsmithing, Aayenda artisans also receive literacy courses and training in social media and e-commerce in order to increase their professionalism and improve their communities through sustainable enterprise.
