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.

Daughter Loved This
Delicate and simplistic design was the perfect gift for my young musician... she put it right on, immediately upon opening it. Has not taken it off since!
Silver Amethyst Necklace
It took a while for this one to arrive as it was on backorder, however I was very pleased with it when it arrived. The pendant is a good size, not too small, and I liked the unusual shape. I really liked the chain that came with it, as not all of the pendants come with that type of chain and I dont like some of the other types that look cheap or more coarse.
simple and sweet
I was pleasantly surprised that the chain was included. The necklace will catch on loose weave sweater tops, but is perfect for summer items. Perfect Mothers Day gift!
