About Team Chile!
Made from recycled copper and brass. These earrings are artisanally hand stamped by women in Chile and are truly a work of art. The beautiful recycled copper gives off a vibrant turquoise patina, making these earrings stand out in the crowd to show your unique style.
Ana is a super-talented artisan in Santiago, Chile. She has overcome all odds to become the amazing artisan she is today. She makes jewelry in her home, working primarily with brass and copper. She started making jewelry because her physical disability limited her from working in factory jobs, where most women work. She couldn't stand up for the required long hours. She knew she needed to be earning an income, especially to take care of her mother as she became older and ill. Ana is one of few women in Chile who does this work, and she sure is good at it!
