Hand carved Ring

This gorgeous ring is hand carved in wood by skilled craftspeople in Rajasthan. I have just returned from a trip to India where I got to feast my eyes on beautifully crafted things like this.
Not only does handmade support livelihoods, it ensure that traditional ways of doing things are encouraged and cultures are kept alive. A piece of machinery can easily replace this artists dream of making hand carved jewellery ......lets make sure that doesn't happen
Whenever possible, lets support Fair Trade and handmade....
This and many more lovely gifts can be purchased on my website:
