HANDMADE IN INDIA
Many of the Artisan Communities we work with join together creating bridges of opportunities. Artisans & entrepreneurs in developing countries are given opportunity of empowerment by expanding their potential to reach a larger audience and bring you beautiful products. You can rest assured that these earrings are fairly, ethically and sustainably produced. The partners work closely with one another in India and ensure artisans are treated with dignity & respect.
In 2009 Sara, a young daughter of an artisan went on a quest to find opportunity for her family and provide her father a safe partnership free of exploitative treatment that her family was subject to for so long. She found a partner group that not only helped her family, but also has grown to create opportunity for many of the community local tradesmen. She is proud to say, "My ART is now my INHERITANCE".
In the sprawling urban center of Old Delhi, this partner group consists of nearly 80 artisans with jewelry development training. They delicately bend wire, etch, bead & polish jewelry from stones, glass, up-cycled metal, as well as natural materials.
We thank YOU for helping all of us create opportunity with ethical, sustainable designs that are making a difference in the world.
Happily, more and more consumers are asking for fair trade products and looking to make socially conscious purchases.
Fair Trade is not charity. It is a trade-based movement that focuses on creating long-term relationships based on transparency, trust and respect. High5Humans is committed to working with partners that provide fair wages and work with organizations that provide safe and healthy working conditions, job training, time off for education, loans and financial advising, opportunities for health care and most importantly a positive and uplifting working environment.
High5Humans is dedicated to preserving the environment through the use of recycled & up-cycled materials, and avoid waste to water reduction in the production process. There are few, if any, machines used in the process- making a truly handmade imprint. This is just another way to feel good about your purchase and to BE A NICE HUMAN!
CARING FOR BRASS JEWELRY
Natural brass will oxidize over time, turning a darker, more muted color. To maintain a shiny, bright finish for as long as possible, store your brass in a sealed plastic bag with an anti-tarnish strip and keep it dry. Do not wear in the shower or store in a humid environment.
Take off jewelry before showering and before applying perfumes, hairsprays, lotions or make-up. Avoid contact with household cleaning products. These can speed up the tarnishing process.
To return brass to its original shine, make a paste of baking soda, water and lemon juice and gently rub it onto the piece with a soft cloth. Wash the mixture off using running water, then dry and buff with a clean cloth.
