18kt Gold Vermeil PSTM Afghanistan Rabia Single Drop Earrings

£110.00

Stone: Agate

On my last trip to Kabul I watched a group of children flying their kites made from old recycled plastic bags and string, flying them high and free over the city, far away from the troubles of everyday life.

 

Every piece is hand made in Kabul by the men and women artisans of the Turquoise Mountain Foundation. Training and employing young people in meaningful creative jobs is vitally important now in Afghanistan when the young desperately need hope and a sense of purpose in a beautiful country tragically caught up in violence and conflict.
