Sirius Alpacas’ Peruvian Painted-Clay Jewelry
Handmade Peruvian original jewelry, fairly traded.
Sirius Alpacas is pleased to introduce its new line of handmade, fair-trade, painted-clay earrings.
Sirius Alpacas’ fair-trade painted-clay jewelry is for people who enjoy wearing original art and appreciate handmade craftsmanship. Our earrings, pendants and beaded jewelry are molded from clay and are hand painted in local villages in the Lima and Cuzo regions, and are then fired in wood- and stone-fueled ovens. Traditional Incan Indian geometric designs carry the culture of this Andean region, bringing the charm of South America to you.
Because each piece is handmade, no two are exactly alike. Please expect some variance from what is pictured.
We offer two types of clay-bead earrings: donut shape and flaired rectangles. Each style was produced in the same mold, paint and fire method.
Our donut-shaped painted-clay earrings with their brilliant colors make a tasteful impression. Perfect for both professional as well as casual dress, they add a subtle earthy richness to any ensemble. To show them off to their fullest potential, we suggest pairing them with solid-color shirts.
Our flaired rectangle earrings with a soft-curve edge feature bright colors. Some are painted in classic Incan geometric designs, while others show off whimsical floral patterns. Bold and fun, these earrings add whimsy and color.
Because our jewelry is fairly traded, you can be confident that your purchase supports responsible social and environmental sustainability. Sirius Alpacas is committed to providing authentic merchandise that was produced through just opportunities in villages throughout Peru and Bolivia. We do not support sweat-shop labor or the exploitation of children. Every purchase supports the artists and local merchants of the Andean region.
So, not only does your jewelry look good on you, but you can also wear it with pride. Sirius Alpacas is a family farm in Chardon, Ohio that raises and boards alpacas for fun, therapy and profit. The farm also imports fair-trade Andean items from Peru and Bolivia, offering the style and culture of South American goods while helping the farmers, artists and craftsmen of that region.
