Made in: Haiti
Artisan Group: 2nd Story Goods
“Stella” is short for Christella, one of the original jewelry makers who has been with FMSC MarketPlace partner 2nd Story Goods for 10 years. These earrings are oh so fresh and oh so fun, just like her! They go with everything, so prepare to wear them often.
All of 2nd Story Goods' jewelry incorporates upcycled and/or local materials. This reflects their values of positively impacting the earth and the local economy of Haiti, as well as the redemption of giving old things a 2nd Story.
Their jewelry team has become experts in their craft since 2011 when 2nd Story Goods started out teaching the skills, crowded together on children’s school benches in Jubilee. Local materials and local skills are married to make their beautiful aluminum pieces. Recycled aluminum is melted and poured into sand molds to set by makers who have been working with aluminum to make cooking pots for years. Each piece is labor-full. Which we love, because more labor means more people with jobs!
