The Village Council
Your answers straight from the village experts
Many traditional artisans employ the handcrafted techniques of their ancestors, which favored a slow, methodical approach in a small workshop, as opposed to mass production. Today, they preserve these methodologies while intentionally distinguishing their approaches from those of large factories. Respect for the environment, and for animal and human life drive the artwork itself. Natural materials are often a sign that a product is eco-friendly. Additionally, many artisans look for ways to reuse or recycle in their artwork. Some choose to repurpose old wood or fabric. Some recycle glass beads or up-cycle plastic and discarded paper. Others follow practices that conserve resources, like water and energy, and are mindful of the pollutants they release into the environment. Shopping from organizations that promote eco-friendly products is the best way to ensure that you are receiving a unique item that does not damage the world through its making.
Featured Reviews on Necklaces
This is an incredibly beautiful delicate necklace! Its absolutely lovely. I cant imagine anyone not loving this necklace! I cannot say enough good things about it! I will say that the pictures struggle to show the delicate elegance of the necklace. I was worried it would be bigger and the pendent would reach too low to be modest but that is not the case at all. Its just right! I think it would be even better with the matching earrings!
