In a beautifully simple contrast of colours and shapes these earrings are designed to be reminiscent of the tents that their creators used to live in. A gorgeously geometric triangular pyramid creates an elegant yet modern style fit for any occasion. Who knew that geometry could be so stylish!
Age old techniques have been used to hand craft this bracelet, finished off with their brilliant blue Lapis Lazuli detail. A stone which is so representative of the Afghani culture.
Handmade in Afghanistan
Materials: Brass and Lapis Lazuli
Size: 2cm width, 5cm Drop
Care: Please note that the base material is natural brass and therefore subject to tarnish. This can easily be cleaned with a soft cloth
Afghanistan's arts and architecture were once the pride of Asia, but over 30 years of war have left these traditions on the verge of extinction. Since 2006 Turquoise Mountain has trained over 450 new artisans in traditional arts. These craftswomen and men learn centuries old skills and work with contemporary designers to produce their unique handmade pieces. In a conflict-ridden society with a debilitated economy, Turquoise Mountain has restored or re-build 112 historic or community buildings in the old city of Kabul, set up a local primary school and family health clinic.
