Product Description:

Agate & Copper Earrings. Handmade by women who are beginning a new life at Starfish Project.

The Starfish Project

Eight years ago, a group of friends, compelled by a deep desire to help sexually-exploited women, established the Starfish Project.  Women who have been physically, emotionally, and sexually abused and see no way out of their situation are given jobs making jewelry. 

They also receive housing, counseling, education, vocational training, and health care.  Over time, the women are encouraged to take on greater roles in the organization's leadership and to realize its vision to love and serve those who have been exploited.
