The Beyond Threads recycled textile platillos saucers necklace consists of various size saucers wound tightly with thread on three braided strands. Surprisingly lightweight; about 36" long.
All recycled textile necklaces are handmade in Peru by groups of women living in small rural communities in the outskirts of Lima. Over 200 women have been individually trained in the making of each unique piece. This empowers them to earn a steady income while simultaneously caring for their families. Each piece sold helps support the growth and social development of these small communities especially for the dedicated craftswomen.
