Fair Trade Jewelry Offers Hope for This Artisan from Brazil

In Brazil, Mariquita (pictured here) creates beautiful golden grass jewelry. She partners with Cross Trade (a new partner of Jesus’ Economy), an organization that works with artisans in Brazil to bring communities out of poverty. Through her partnership with Cross Trade, she is able to provide for herself and her family, giving them hope for a more stable future.

Golden grass is long-lasting and lightweight, making it perfect for jewelry. It also makes a great alternative for people with metal-sensitive skin!
