Geometric shapes are hand cut from brass sheet, using traditional jewellery making techniques, to create this Just Trade Triangle Brass Pendant. Handmade by Lucie from the Hope Jewellery Project (formerly Zoe Project) in Lima, Peru.
Just Trade was founded in June 2006, initially to provide a route to market for a struggling fair trade project in the shantytowns of Lima, Peru. The company was born out of first hand contact with real people in the developing world and the recognition that in order for such projects to be sustainable they need a long-term business opportunities. The women who are now involved have been able to educate their children and secure a better future for their families.
Combining traditional craft skills and materials with expert knowledge of contemporary jewellery, they have developed ranges of unique, characterful pieces. They work collaboratively on the design of the products with the artisans who make them. By teaching the fundamentals of design, they give the artisans the tools to take an active part in the product development process, encouraging a sense of pride and ownership in their work.
