Bronze stars chime each with a bell in the middle, connected by hand-made bronze links. The bells range in size from large to small, producing a beautiful harmony of tones. Made by rural artisans in a small fair trade cooperative in the Kutchchi desert region of western India. Each bell is first beaten into shape by hand, then buried under the hot desert sand in a kiln. This age-old technique of metal-work is what gives each piece its unique patina and tone.
These colorful prosperity hens are crafted from scraps of fabric that brighten and uplift any space. Hens have long been a symbol of prosperity in Northern India, where the women create these strands and in turn, create their own prosperity.
