In Bangladesh painted decorations are everywhere! Large beautiful patterns, alponas, are skillfully crafted onto floors and stairwells at weddings and other big celebrations. So, no surprise that even a humble recycled wooden bead gets attention!
The other brightly coloured beads in these easy-to-wear earrings are also made from scraps of wood and then hand-dyed in the maker’s workshop.
These earrings are artisan Rina’s own design. She now has at least another dozen women working from their homes fulfilling orders for her creations. Small scale, home based work that’s easily picked up and put down earns every artisan a good wage whilst still caring for her family’s domestic needs.
