The story behind these earrings:
Trinity Jewelry Crafts is a small jewelry–making business located on the edge of Kariobangi, one of the poorest sections of Nairobi and home to thousands of Kenyans. Profits are shared by the group, artisans participate in decision making and workers benefit from a pension and savings program. Founder and manager Joseph Muchina received training to make jewelry through a handicraft program offered by the National Council of Churches of Kenya. He does all of the jewelry design, finding his inspiration in traditional African jewelry. Muchina believes that economic opportunity, rather than handouts from government or charities, is the most effective way to address poverty.
Trinity Jewelry Crafts was founded by three partners in 1984, and has been family–owned since 1990.
