A whirl of colour and form inducing the subtle tones of the earth and sky. Earrings to make you feel like an earth mother…and an ethically minded one at that.
Each bead is separately made by hand , with traditional Khmer design then being meticulously detailed all around. Hand painting and a lustrous glaze finish off a pair of earrings which are as individual as their maker. Who in all cases are some very creative young people who gain inspiration from their history and thus find a way to connect with their lost traditions.
Each pair of earrings comes in a presentation pack -- perfect for gift giving!

Out sourcing to those who are unable to come to the workshop because of family commitments or flexible hours to accommodate those caring for families.
