June 2, 2015 - Beautiful - both color combos are stunning and they are very comfortable to wear.
January 31, 2015 - Loveliest necklace I've seen. The colors are bright and it's heavy and sturdy.
July 26, 2014 - Pretty but large, bigger than I expected. Probably wouldn't have ordered if I knew how big it is but not returning it because I want to help animals. Pretty but don't order unless you want a large piece.
February 5, 2014 - I have the blue & green one. It's beautiful, & the glass stones are large.
December 19, 2013 - I ordered the blue one. A piece of jewelry made out of Murano glass at that price can't be beat. The way the light sparkles through the Murano it goes from blue to lime green to turquoise.
Artisan: Toucan Krafte
Toucan Krafte is an artisan group made up of economically disadvantaged women from villages just outside of New Delhi, India. Besides providing the women with a much-needed steady income, Toucan also provides schooling for artisan's children, health care, and ongoing education and support. Many women are the sole income provider for their family, while others use the fair wage they receive to ensure their children can attend school and have the required books and supplies. Toucan focuses on educating women in order to break the cycle of poverty and dependence, and channels their profits into a trust that provides scholarships for girls' higher education.
Geeta, the eldest of seven children, left school early in order to support her family and found opportunity with Toucan Krafte. Although Geeta had no experience with jewelry, she completed the training program and soon began to excel in beaded jewelry and crafts. The fair wage she earns has enabled her to help support her family and to send her younger siblings to school. Geeta now teaches craft skills to other women in her community, further expanding hope and opportunity in her community.
