Jewelry that is made as part of a social-enterprise effort;
of real benefit to artisan producer group and community
is Fair Trade Jewelry. A required condition of Fair Trade
is that the artisans are successful in terms of providing
nutrition, health, education and homes to their families.
Especially, the artisan needs to be able to say to his or her children
“when you grow up you can be a silversmith or a craftswoman
having your own shop to support your family
with diligent and honorable labor.”
Fair Trade Jewelry is forged in the creativity
and industry of the crafts-producing artisans.
Ethical fair trade means the craftspeople
are independent and do not have to scrape.
Fair Trade Jewelry means dignity for the artisans.
