"Why did you choose this product?"
I have had these earrings for a few months now and should have come to write a review sooner. I wanted different earrings and I found them here. These earrings are so cute. I get so many women saying they like them and were did I get them I tell them at Overstock. I just want to say more people should buy Fair Trade. You can feel the spirit of the individual that hand crafted them. Giving to others is a Blessing we all should share! Thank You again O!...

Story Behind the Art:
Some of the favorite recycled jewelry items are the 'Dancing Girl' pins and earrings, made of recycled phone cards by craftspeople in Kisumu, Kenya and finished by TEMAK. The sign for the Teenage Mothers Association of Kenya (TEMAK) indicates that it is 'the last house towards the Obunga slums, the most destitute area of Kisumu. Many of the unwed mothers and young girls who come to TEMAK to learn job skills live in these slums. As a community center, the organization also provides the community with an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues.

I like to wear quirky earrings because they make folks smile and sometimes start a conversation. These fit the bill in every way but if you have long hair or wear a high collar they have rough spots that will stick to them. So while they are fun they are not well made and for the price won't last long I fear. I still like them but can't recomend them. I still like to support 3rd world countries so will keep shopping world stock.Read More
I purchased these lovely earrings for a friend who travels to Kenya to teach when she can.When she opened the package the smile that came on her face touched my heart.She held the earrings to her cheek and sighed and thanked me.They are made very well and when worn look very very nice. Thank you,Read More
I love buying art and jewelry that directly benefits the artisan. These uniquely fun and environmentally friendly earrings really fit my need when I recently went searching for inexpensive gifts for my sister and niece. I loved them so much I ordered a third pair for myself, They arrived with a little note about the artisan group they benefit and the recycled resources they use to make their jewelry. Each pair is well matched but differerent enough from the others that you could buy and wear a different matching pair depending on what you wearing or how you are feeling. They are light weight and I have had several copliments on how "fun" they are "dancing" from my ears!Read More
