Silver Earrings Dragonfly (Studs)


€17,00
Description

Meet the most successful predator on earth! Scientists believe that dragonflies have a 90-95 % success rate when hunting their prey for food. Making it twice as successful as a white shark and four times as successful as a lion. Their secret is, instead of following every move and turn of their prey, they calculate where their prey will be.

When looking for a mate, dragonfly males try to keep up their high success rate and can become rather aggressive. Luckily females came up with a cunning plan: in full flight they will drop out of the sky and play dead. Once the coast is clear, they'll fly away.

These dragonflies make a perfect gift for entomologists and nature lovers.

Sterling silver 925 Nickel-free Made ethically and with love in Thailand/Bali

Nina Designs is a jewellery brand with a heart of gold. They make fair trade jewellery in Thailand and Bali and try to work as ethically and ecologically as possible. Their wages are well above national minimum wages, employees receive an extra month's wage as an end-of-year bonus. In addition, workers receive a food allowance for lunches. The company provides health care, with a doctor on call for staff medical needs. Expectant mothers receive education about prenatal care and safe delivery. Mothers receive three months paid maternity leave or six months on half pay. Their hospital fees are also covered. In Bali, fifty percent of managers at the production facility are women, a figure that is even more impressive in Indonesia than it would be in the EU.

Nina Designs uses as much recycled silver as possible, and for every package they send, they plant a tree that will be part of a so called "forest garden". They give out microloans to skilled women artisans and support different NGO's for human rights, literacy and the environment.
