Fair Trade Friday May 2019 Earring Of The Month Club Review
This card was included with information about the earrings and the charitable organizations.
The Teardrop Navigate Earrings by Sojourn Studio, Thailand/Myanmar - Retail Value $18
This month's earrings are really lovely! They are handmade from ceramic porcelain bone china with sterling silver fittings. They are about 1.5" long. I love the design, and I am happy to have them because they are unlike anything else I have! I just wish I had darker skin to that they would pop a little more. The earrings were made by the women of Sojourn Studio, an organization that fights human trafficking along the Thailand-Myanmar border. Trafficking is a big problem there, but Sojourn Studio takes in children and provides them with shelter and care. They also provide training and employment for women who are mothers or who have been victims of trafficking themselves.
The Verdict: I have been a huge fan of Fair Trade Friday Earring OTM Club for a long time now! This month's earrings are so really pretty, and I plan to wear them a lot in the coming months. White is such a great color for summer! I also think this month's charity is a really important one as human trafficking is such a big global problem. And of course, I am really happy with the value this month - $18 earrings in a $12.99 plus free shipping package! That's great!
