Brand: Just TradeMaterial: Brass
These elegant brass earrings are designed and crafted by Diana, Lucila, Naty and their friends at our Zoe Project in Lima, Peru.
Subtly textured ribbons of golden coloured brass are wound and twisted to make these gorgeous spiral earrings.
We work collaboratively on the design of all our products with the artisans who make them. By teaching the fundamentals of design, we give the artisans that we work with the tools to take an active part in the product development process, encouraging a sense of pride and ownership in the work.

Just Trade was founded in June 2006, initially to provide a route to market for Zoe Creations, a struggling fair trade project in the shantytowns of Lima, Peru. The company was born out of first hand contact with real people in the developing world and the recognition that in order for such projects to be sustainable they need a long-term route to market for their goods.
Combining traditional craft skills and materials with expert knowledge of contemporary jewellery, we have developed ranges of unique, characterful pieces with strong appeal in the European market. From exquisite crocheted silverwork to beautifully carved tagua pendants, our distinctive products are made with care and skill from locally-sourced and ethical materials where possible.
We work collaboratively on the design of our products with the artisans who make them. By teaching the fundamentals of design, we give the artisans that we work with the tools to take an active part in the product development process, encouraging a sense of pride and ownership in their work.
We believe this collaborative approach makes for better products, and a happier, more fulfilled workforce. Together, these make for a sustainable business model.
Plus, it’s fun. We organise competitions (what better way to find the perfect design for a crocheted bee?), and encourage the artisans to try new things and come forward with their own product ideas. New skills are learned and shared, enabling the projects to grow as knowledge spreads among the communities.

We are a small home based business.
We keep all stock at home, so when you place an order, we don't have to travel to collect or package your items. It's all done in our home office.
We package the majority of our goods in recycled plastic mailing bags. Originally we started doing this to protect against rainwater, but now it means you have the option to disinfect the package when it arrives in your home.
We have been strictly observing the government's advice and have been socially distancing - staying in apart from for essential trips - since 16 March.
As far as we can be sure, nobody who lives in or has visited our home has been ill since the outbreak hit the UK.
We use the Royal Mail and very occasionally Parcelforce for deliveries. We have a "Drop & Go" account so we don't have to wait in line or get within 2 metres of anyone when we post out your goods. As long as our local post offices are open, and we remain well, we will get your orders out. Like a lot of essential services, the Royal Mail is under pressure with staff self-isolating, so your parcel may not arrive as quickly as you would normally expect, None of this is normal, but we'll get through it together.
Artisans and producers in low income countries rely on fair trade to support their families. Fair trade has helped build some resilience into the communities we help in the form of better hygiene and sanitation, better nutrition and healthcare support. Most of the countries where our goods originate have banned exports and imports to limit the spread of the virus. This means workers are unable to get their work to us, and in some cases their workshops are closed. Our suppliers are continuing to pay for and place orders to keep their producers going through what we hope is a very short-lived period in our lives. In contrast, high street fashion companies in the UK have cancelled $1.5bn in orders with garment factories in Bangladesh, putting thousands of low paid women out of work.
The need for fair trade has never been clearer. Thank you for your support and stay safe and well.
All Just Trade jewellery items are shipped to you direct from their premises in London. This means if you order Just Trade items alongside other items you will receive two deliveries.
We are sorry that because of the arrangement with Just Trade we are unable to accept orders from customers outside the UK for Just Trade jewellery items.
All's Fair offers a "no quibbles" 28-day returns policy on all the items we post out direct to our customers.
