Earrings made by survivors help them and their childrenHandmade Earrings that Transform Lives

Our earrings are made by women around the world rebuilding their lives after surviving slavery or other human rights abuses.  Your purchase directly helps them to support themselves, rejoin society, and raise their children in freedom and safety.  Womens empowerment and sutainable fair trade with fashion and style!
When you buy a pair of our sterling silver, brass, pearl, or beaded earrings, you contribute to employment and education programs for women and children, such as Anisha, freed at age 18 with her infant son Ramesh and now living in safety and wellness.  Anisha used to be afraid to dream, but now dreams of a career as a master jeweler, and also wants to share her expertise by becoming a trainer for other poor and vulnerable women.

You can help make her dream come true, and give or wear a pair of our finely crafted earrings!

    The survivors came Survivors hanging out with friendsup with the name 'Rupee earrings' for this design because "Everyone can use a few more rupees!"  Working in our jewelry programs has provided many survivors with the income they need to move out of shelters and live independently for the first time in their lives.  As Rani describes her new life  'Now that I earn my own living, my brothers and father no longer tell me what to do.   I decide when to work, when to go out, when to watch a movie or when to do housework'.  Watching movies and doing housework may not seem like monumental decisions to us, but for survivors of slavery or severe domestic violence, these simple choices are a gift which they never take for granted.

    Becky Bavinger, who sBoys growing up in Calcutta red light areapent three years living in India,helping to launch Made By Survivors' projects, including school sponsorship programs and the Destiny center, tells this incredible story about a nighttime visit to a project in a Calcutta red light area: "As it got darker, the older boys at the center told me that I should get going or I may have some problems walking to the bus stop. To get to the main road I have to walk through 3 long lanes of brothels, and the men in this area are violent and often drunk. One time I was even asked "how much?" So these boys offered to be my bodyguard and walk me to the bus stop. Five of these boys surrounded me, one holding my hand on each side, two in front leading the way, and one behind me. As we walked, many of the men made comments that I thankfully didn't understand and these boys just kept their eyes straight ahead, occasionally pausing to tell the men to show some respect. We got to the bus stop and they waited with me until my bus came. They even instructed the driver where to drop me off and to not overcharge me. On my way home I thought about how different these boys are from the ones they were protecting me from. I hope their background, and their exposure to women's suffering, will make them advocates for change instead of falling into the cycle of abuse. But I do have hope for them, and they have hope for their community. One of the more mature boys had assured me, "Becky di, we'll find you a good husband who will treat you like a queen."   We dedicate these Bright Futures earrings to Becky's bodyguards, and to all boys who care about the rights of girls and women.
