Story Behind the Art:
Crafted in Kisumu, Kenya, and finished by the Teenage Mothers Association of Kenya. TEMAK is "the last house towards the Obunga slums," the most destitute area of Kisumu. TEMAK was organized to provide job training. As a community center, the organization also provides the villagers an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues. Many of TEMAK's young women participate in making crafts, earning income to support themselves and their families. TEMAK has also become a craft center for the professional artisans and craftspeople in the town of Kisumu; providing local and international sales outlets that create a sustainable income for many in the community.
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.
These were a gift for my wife. She found them unique and interesting. The price was right and she was happy to be supporting artists and craftspeople from around the world. I would have given them a 4.5 star rating as they really do like nice and they're certainly unusual.
I purchased these earrings for my little sister for Christmas due to her adventures on Bike & Build and she loved them!!! We're a quirky bunch that enjoys even the simplest thought of love and these were perfect to commemorate her memories so that she may once pass them on. Very cool!!!
