These striking earrings are made using dense seed husk and feature handmade and hand painted ceramic rainforest birds. They are large but surprisingly lightweight.
We like the idea of carrying little Cotingas or Toucans with you, a symbolic reminder of rainforest conservation.

Approximately 5cm drop.
Each pair is handmade in Peru.
Siesta Crafts was started in 1983 by Chris and Les Harper with a market stall selling handicrafts that were brought back from their travels from Mexico and Guatemala (hence the name!).
They now import directly from suppliers in countries all over the world on a Fair Trade basis and they are proud to be a member of the British Association for Fair Trade Shops and Suppliers.
They specialise in unusual and interesting gifts. In this day and age of anodyne, cloned town high streets, it is good to see they have a vibrant, colourful presence with a wide range of unique and colourful handcrafted and fair trade items.
Their intention is that by trading with their producers they are helping them to achieve economic self-sufficiency, whilst simultaneously bringing to their customers the skills and crafts of other cultures.
