Story Behind the Art: Tara Projects is a fair trade organization based in New Delhi, India. They seek to help craftspeople gain education, rights and human dignity in order to combat poverty. Tara provides women and men with economic security through regular work at living wages, ongoing training, education, and marketing services. Founded in the early 1970s with the goal of providing work to economically disadvantaged artisans in Delhi, Tara has helped to pioneer fair trade in India. Since its inception, Tara Projects has been committed to fighting exploitation, poverty, and illiteracy of artisans who are subjected to the social injustices of unfair trade practices.

Mother Of Pearl, Recycled glass Bead. Brass leverback hooks
Though I am very disappointed with the stones in these, the effect is, nevertheless, rather dark and mysterious. The brass fittings enhance the overall look: the earrings seem burnished and golden. They look great with my red hair. They have a casual, modern look, and they are just the size that I love.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The mother-of-pearl background pieces are quite pretty. The facetted "purple beads" in the earrings I received are actually dull... the color of day-old coffee.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The stone quality is quite poor except for the mother-of-pearl..
I chose these earrings over a pendent and was disappointed at the quality. I have not worn them yet plan on wearing them as daily wear. The purple was darker then in the picture that was a turn off. I thought about returning them but will keep for Rhodes days when I just go casual to work
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The color was more brown then purple
