This Necklace's Impact:
This necklace, like all of our Semillas Collection, was made by the 14 women of the El Palmeral collective in El Salvador. The necklace is named for one of them, Vidalia del Carmen Duran, who has three children, and says of her work: "We are happy to be helping our homes and families and also because we are working in our own communities. We can all be with our kids and take care of our homes, without having to leave and look for work away, in the cities. That fact is something we are especially grateful for, to be able to work within our own community."
Specs & Sizing:
- Length adjustable from 20" to 24" (including 1.5" tassel)
- Woman-made in El Salvador
