October 12, 2014 - I got the mauve necklace and I love it. The color goes with so many outfits. It kinda takes on the colors of brown and light purple. I would highly recommend this product. It came wrapped secure and I received it before the time that was quoted.......

September 6, 2014 - Bought the blue and loved it! I wear it all the time! The cord is comfortable and easy to adjust.

August 28, 2014 - I have the blue pendant and I love it! Always be gentle when adjusting the knots and do it slowly--it is string, after all. It will break if you yank on it! It shouldn't come untied, but if you're rough with it you'll crack the wax coating on the string. If they do come untied, you can Google "Maori necklace knot" or "sliding adjustable knot" for instructions on how to re-tie it. It's a lovely piece!

July 18, 2014 - I love the look of the cat ..(i got the blue cat) but the necklace part was hard to figure out how to make longer....and sadly the necklace got knocked off a table and fell on a wood floor...the tail broke off in 2 pieces and there was no way to fix it.

June 10, 2014 - So adorable!

Artisan: Calypso Chile Glass Fusing

Artisan Calypso Chile Glass Fusing

Marcela Cofre has been making unique fused glass jewelry since 1994. "I always enjoyed working with my hands, and the need to support a household led me into arts and crafts. I tried crochet, pressed flowers, and batik, but they didn't sell well," she says. "So I taught myself the art of transforming glass with heat." Marcela opened a workshop and soon was able to provide for all her family's needs. "At the same time I realized that with the creation of the workshop I was able to provide satisfying jobs for many people in my community, providing fair wages and giving the workers self esteem and happiness."

Calypso Chile Glass Fusing is a micro enterprise run from Marcela's home. "In the beginning I placed my products in local shops in Chile. In time, business conditions in Chile forced us to look into exporting our products. Now our merchandise is sold throughout the U.S. and Europe."

Marcela's main concern is the welfare of her artisan employees and their families, and she works to ensure their fair treatment, access to education, and ability to support themselves in a happy, healthy environment. "We are very proud to be able to give work to more than thirty families in Chile making glass jewelry, decorative pieces, wind chimes, and ornamental glassware. Our company provides dignified work to women heads of households," she says. Calypso Chile Glass welcomes all fair trade groups to help with their mission in Chile. She explains, "Our current project is sponsoring the work of students who are selling wonderful artwork made from recycled glass bottles. The profits will be used to help a nursery school for poor children at social risk."

Sonia Casas Labrine has worked at Calypso for twenty years. She started as a caregiver for Marcela's daughters before learning to make necklaces. Sonia has two sons and a granddaughter; one of her sons, Felipe, is in a wheelchair. Sonia's work with Calypso has helped her cope with the difficult reality of her son's disability. With the money she earns, she's been able to pay for all of his medical care. Sonia says she and her children never would have made it without the support of her Calypso family.

Another employee, Natalia Fierro, says "I have worked in Calypso for the last 13 years of my life and not only has it been a wonderful job but also it has been a school. I work in the administrative area dealing with national and international clients. Every day I learn something new and it always happens in such friendly environment that I give thanks for this beautiful life. It could not be better. I have a job, friends, I am always learning and Calypso is the best family I could ever dream of. I am happy. I am complete."
