Ladies and gentlemen,
Just Trade is a well-established brand which offers beautifully designed and ethically made jewellery and accessories. In fact, they work in partnership with small Fair Trade projects in Ecuador, Peru and India.
The jewellery collection we are presenting today is perfect for London lovers, as it lightheartedly represents the (yearlong, smiley) unpredictable British weather!
Here a few pieces from the collection of “cloud and rain”, to start with:
Cloud Necklace. Price: £25. Buy it here!
Cloud Earrings. Price: £10. Buy them here!
Following, you see the “umbrella” pieces:
Umbrella and Rain Drop Necklace. Price: £25. Buy it here!
Umbrella and Rain Drop Bracelet. Price: £15. Buy it here!
Umbrella Earrings. Price: £10. Buy them here!
They are lovely. Aren’t they?!
The cloud, rain and umbrella pieces have all been handmade from brass sheet, the texture of which has been achieved by a special hammer. These pieces are made by the women in the Flowering Desert Project in Tamil Nadu, India. This project offers training and fairly paid employment opportunities, which offer a way for women to increase their skill set and future work possibilities.
Other pieces I really like from the Just Trade collection at the store of the Museum of London are the “River Bangle and Necklace”, which are Museum of London exclusives and relate to the River Thames (which is at the heart of the history of London, thoroughly represented by the Museum). They are simple and stylish. Here a few photos:
River Bangle. Price: £25. Buy it here!
River Necklace. Price: £25. Buy it here!
This jewellery is handmade by Lizet and Diana from the Hope Jewellery Project, in collaboration with Just Trade. This project provides training and fairly paid work for women in some of the poorest shanty towns of Lima, Peru. By working with this project these women are able to educate their children and secure a better future for their families. The silver plated chain is sourced in the UK and the jewellery is hand finished and packed in their South London Studio.
I hope you like these jewellery pieces! Get them for yourselves or for your best friends while supporting Just Trade’s and its affiliates’ efforts towards the creation of a better world.
Thank you and until soon!
