- Sterling silver
- Handmade in & fairly traded from Mexico
- Far Fetched supplier IDs: EC-705
Thirty-five years ago, Far Fetched began making and selling Artisan Made jewelry from the back of a truck at craft markets in Southern California. Today, Far Fetched works with 100 artisans or artisan cooperatives producing and selling Artisan Made jewelry. Together, we have invested $15 million dollars in Trade not Aid to artisans and the artisan community since 1991!
The Far Fetched vision remains the same - to produce and sell Artisan Made jewelry that improve the lives of all from the artisan supplier to the end customer. Production continues in the same Central Mexico town employing generations of artisans working mostly in home workshops. And in accordance with their sustainably practices, they utilize reclaimed metals whenever available and their .925 Mexican Sterling Silver is always nickel free.
They are a small, purpose-driven team spanning multiple communities across the US and working in close collaboration with their supplier-partners. They follow the fair trade principals providing a fair wage, transparency, and safe working conditions and are proud of their affiliation with the World Fair Trade Organization (WFTO).
I took a chance ordering these, given that the description gave no details other than that they are sterling and made in Mexico. It would have been helpful to know the size in advance. On the website they appeared to be hollow in the center, but what looked to be hollow is actually black coloring. The disks are very small, just under 3/8” across, but they are cute and seem to be well-made, so for the price I will keep them.
