These earrings were made by Fair Anita artisans in Mexico: "The cooperative, run by changemaker Paula, is located outside of Taxco, Mexico, which is the silver capital of the world. Some women we work with were taught the craft by their fathers, others were taught by women in the group. Regardless, the tradition of silversmithing in these small villages goes back generations, and it is the livelihood of most people in the area. Women we partner with in Mexico are able to work from their home, this allows them to work as well as look after their kids. Mostly, our partners in Mexico are proud to keep this craft alive, it has been passed down through generations, and now our partners are overjoyed to share their talents and traditions with you."
