Story Behind the Art: When purchasing items from Worldstock you not only purchase a unique piece but you also help artisans around the world. Asian Crafts items are handmade in the rural suburbs of Kathmandu, Nepal by several different artisans. While some work in shops most of them work out of their own home. There are around 20 families that benefit from the orders received through Worldstock. Dipak Tuladhar, an artisan himself has been able to sponsor and fund several Modern Newa-English Schools which the main objective is to teach the local Newar children in their own mother tongue (called Nepal Bhasha) so that the teaching will be more effective than using a language (Sanskrit and Khas language) that children do not understand well.Dipak is thankful with the opportunity Worldstock has given him and his family.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
I could not believe my eyes! When I looked at these earrings, I thought I had received the template for the earrings. The metal was wider than the pictured style and somehow flatter but thin and very very very cheap in appearance. They looked as if they had not been finished. DO NOT bother with these earrings. I buy Novica earrings exclusively. I have never seen such poor workmanship!
These are really nice earrings and were larger than expected, so I'm very happy with them. The detailing with the silver is beautiful and they are very classy, but also a little bit edgy. The reason for the 4 stars is that they had some discoloration on them--possibly a glue or something to hold the stone in--and I couldn't get it off with any silver polishing wipes. Not sure if something like this occurs on every pair, but I was a little disappointed with that. They are still nice earrings, though.
