Handmade by members of a cooperative in Mozambique, these surprisingly lightweight earrings are carved from African Blackwood and inlaid with a circle of teak to form a stylish modern design. The earrings are 1 1/2 inches in diameter.
Meet the Artisans
Based in Mozambique, BaobArt is a collective of over twenty artisans from impoverished zones in and around the Maputo City center. Brought together by craft enthusiasts who helped them grow production, the artisans now have access to global markets and with this access comes the ability to support their families and communities. BaobArt artisans produce a wide range of traditionally inspired crafts, specializing in the use of local and renewable wood and recycled materials in stunning jewelry and home decor. The artisan’s extensive training and love for their art is visible in the high quality of each carefully crafted piece.
