The Hera necklace takes its name from the Greek goddess of the air and women's fertility. Callia is an ethical jewelry brand that applies fair trade principals to empower low-income women in the Ivory Coast, West Africa. Callia Jewelry trains rural women’s associations to produce and supply organic beads. It then trains urban women artisans to design and craft these beads into high-end, handmade beaded jewelry. These women also participate in technical training on production and design, to develop their professional skills. Callia's jewelry is empowering a new generation of African women artisans to drive social and economic change. Each piece of Callia Jewelry that you buy generates income that enables Callia's women suppliers and artisans to support their families.
