Vibrant hues recall hot desert sands and brilliant blue skies in these artisan-crafted earrings from Mali. In the ancestral tradition, master jewelers from the Tuareg, Dogon, and Togolese regional groups hand-bead these delightfully dynamic pieces -- available in your choice of Blue or Yellow. Each earring features four delicate beaded strands, each terminating in a single luminous glass bead. Comes with decorative muslin drawstring bag, ideal for gift-giving.

Earrings measure approximately 2.75" L (7 cm) and have hooks for pierced ears. Handmade in and fairly traded from Mali, West Africa.

Artisan: Tamacali

Artisan: Tetou Gologo
Where: Bamako, Mali

"For the Malian Dogons, Tuareg and Togolese tribes, jewelry design is an ancient tradition."

Tetou Gologo, the founder of company Tamacali, creates her designs to accentuate the beauty of different skin tones with the natural colors of stones, pearls, and metals. Based in Mali's capital city of Bamako, Tamacali employs Malians from the Dogon, Tuareg and Togolese ethnic groups. These groups have a long history of artisanship, and are world famous for their sculptures, jewelry and masks. Tetou gains special inspiration from the traditional sculpture art of the Dogon people.

The artisans Tetou employs earn five times the Malian minimum wage. One artisan, Seyadou, uses his earnings to attend school, while another, Hamido, went from being a housekeeper to "chief craftsman." Tamacali also provides training, medical services, daily meals, and annual vacations. By relying on traditional skills and modern African designers, each piece of handmade Tamacali jewelry is unique, captivating and inspiring.
