Gold Hammered Earrings by the Starfish Project

First of all, these earrings are just beautiful.  I love them! They are a hammered gold on a fixed gold hook.  They are super smooth and they feel like they are really good quality.  Secondly, they are from the Starfish Project, which is an organization I am really fond of.  Honestly, FTF could send me earrings from the Starfish Project every month, and it would not hurt my feelings one bit.  They have really cool designs and tend to be good quality. The organization provides education, training, employment and a slew of other services to exploited women in Asia and their children. Unfortunately, these earrings are not on their website, because I wish I could tell you more about what they are made of. But, I do know that all their jewelry is handmade.

The Verdict: I love my subscription to the Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club! This month’s earrings are just gorgeous, and I know I will get a lot of use out of them. In addition, I really like the charitable giving aspect of this subscription, and usually, the value is really good, too.

To Wrap Up:

Can you still get this box if you sign up today? No, you will receive the February box. Order by the 15th of each month to get that month’s box.

  1. If it comes in that cute box that’s a big plus in my book bc it is sooooo cute and perfect for gifting!

    • I know, right? The box is so cute!!!

  2. Is that a round box they are packaged in?

    • Yes, that’s the “standard” packaging from Starfish Project. It’s adorable! But note that since it’s from the featured source for the month, not every month of earrings from Fair Trade Friday will come in that packaging….

      • Thanks LB! That’s correct. The earrings come from lots of different sources. But I LOVE getting stuff from Starfish Project. I wish they would start their own subscription box!
