Lightweight and rich with details, these earrings have been handcrafted by the women of Langtang, in Nepal.

All six sides of these earring have the same decoration and detail. The hollow cylinder is 1 cm long.

Langtang is a valley in northern Nepal, near the Tibetan border nestled between Himalayan Mountains.  In April 2015 a 7.8 magnitude earthquake hit the Himalayan nation of Nepal. In Langtang, the quake triggered an avalanche of a mighty mountain, pummeling the village below with rock, ice and snow, killing a third of the residents and destroying most of their homes. Langtang Designs was created soon after.

It has been a creative outlet for Langtang's women to gather together, work with their hands, share stories and earn money to rebuild their houses and their lives.

Langtang Designs creates quality jewelry that reflects the beauty of Langtang while giving hope, empowerment and a fair income to its workers. Each design is named after a woman in the group and uses stones that are associated with the women's Tibetan heritage.
