Maritza is a talented jewelry maker living in the impoverished city of Chimbote, Peru. She has taken her physical disabilities and turned the situation into something positive-- she's been able to sit and perfect her craft for years, and has taught 10 other women to do the same. Maritza leads a group of differently-abled jewelry makers, focusing on fairness and creating opportunities for all the women in the group. She's a true hero! Maritza designed this necklace herself, and it has quickly become one of our favorites. It hangs below the bust, works well with any neckline, and is an easy piece to throw on and go! We call it our travel necklace, as it doesn't have any metal so you never have to take it off at airport security.
We hope you fall in love with this hand-woven piece-- made fair trade with pride by Maritza herself.
This macrame-woven necklace is accented with glass beads and measures 42".
When founder Joy learned that financial insecurity is the #1 reason that women stay in domestic abuse situations, she knew she had to do something. So she started Fair Anita to provide women around the world with autonomy and independence to live empowered lives. Today, Fair Anita partners with over 8,000 women around the world to create artisan jewelry and build a more sustainable economy for women around the world. The byproduct of that mission is cute, handmade accessories that everyone can afford and feel great about wearing.
