Coffee is a universal symbol of hospitality, warmth, and possibly that eureka! moment of a new idea coming to life. So taking a coffee bean and making it into a new creative mini-art piece just makes the most perfect sense!

From casual coffee with your bestie, to a night out with hubs, these earrings are the perfect all day earring!
And when you wear them, they are a reminder of the good that your purchase has done:
100% of proceeds support sustainable jobs for marginalized mothers living along the Dominican Haitian border. By earning fair wages, their artisans are empowered to put food on the table, pay for her children's school supplies and invest in her own education. Now that is a charity you WANT to support, women empowering women!
Madres Jewelry is made in the artisan community based in Los Pinos del Eden, Dominican Republic, a rural mountain community near the Dominican-Haitian border. Madres artisans receive tools and training in artisanal jewelry-making techniques, equipping them to create beautiful jewelry symbolizing hope for a better future.
