F.R.E.E. Woman Copper Viridian Equilateral Earrings

ZAJ8A

  • Beautiful copper earrings, featuring equilaterals with a viridian patina, are handcrafted by young self-taught Zambian women of F.R.E.E (Foundation for the Realization of Economic Empowerment). Using copper recycled from used water heaters and wire, women of F.R.E.E  are defying gender norms, becoming metalsmiths for jewelry-making.

    Measures 1.25"W x 1.75"L. Because this is a handcrafted item, each will vary slightly. 

  • F.R.E.E (Foundation for the Realization of Economic Empowerment) started as a group of young, inexperienced women, with no previous jewelry making experience and defying gender norms, who taught themselves metalsmithing using copper. Using copper recycled from used water heaters and wire, they transform it into beautiful pieces of jewelry. Their skills have continually expanded, and some women have trained in silversmithing.
