Similar to my second entry, this pair of earrings and necklace combo is from the NGO Namma Bhoomi in India. It was made by a child who was taught the specific vocational skill of jewelry-making. I am not a big fan of jewelry sets because I think they are often too “matchy matchy”, but I love this one. It is particularly special because it really is a true product of the heart and soul, specifically the heart and soul of a young female whose skills help empower her to support herself.
