Silver necklace cricket


€49,00

Start your day on a happy note

The insect world is extremely fascinating. Various attributes have to fit in tiny bodies. So you get insects like the cricket that has hypersensitive ears under its front knees and makes music with a kind of comb in its wings (in most species only the males). The upper wing has teeth and the lower one has a scraper. They then rub each other about eight times per chirp and can thus make different melodies: romantic melodies to lure females, angry melodies to scare away other males and "hurray, I have mated" melodies.

This necklace is an ideal gift for nature lovers, biologists and entomologists.

Nina Designs is a jewelry brand with a heart of gold that makes fair trade jewelry in Thailand and Bali and tries to work as ethically and ecologically as possible. Their wages are well above the national minimum wages, employees receive a thirteenth month, 3 months of paid maternity leave, education about pre- and post-natal care, pension savings, etc. In their studio in Bali, 50% of the managers are women, which is even more impressive there than here.

Nina Designs uses recycled silver as much as possible. For each parcel sent, a tree is planted, which is part of a so-called "forest garden". The jeweler gives micro loans to starting craftswomen and supports various NGOs that fight for human rights, literacy or the environment. And of course their silversmiths also make beautiful jewellery!
