Empowering Women to Design Their Own Bright Futures.

Silver Jewelry

Our innovative collection of handmade silver, brass, and copper jewelry is crafted by some of South Asia’s first women metalsmiths - because the profession is  traditionally practiced only by men.  Your purchase empowers artisans who once struggled with poverty, severe discrimination, or slavery.  

These courageous young women are no longer defined by the deprivation and exploitation of their pasts.  Today they are glowing with joy because they get to express their creativity in a respectful and supportive work environment, and earning more than anyone in their family every dreamed possible.

"You know those lucky people, who all their dreams come true?  Well, now I am one of them!"  Soma
