Tassel Clay Necklace
Artisans at Papillon hand roll the clay beads used to create these one-of-a-kind necklaces, which also feature a handmade tassel.
Why is this clay unique? In desperate times, extremely poor families in Haiti will mix clay from the ground with water, oil and salt to create a clay "cookie." These clay cookies are eaten by adults and children in order to fill their stomachs when food is not available.
By transforming the same clay into these beautiful necklaces, artisans from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti are able to sculpt their way out of poverty and support their families!
