February 17, 2014 - I got both sizes and though I *love* them, they are a little small for my huge-boned wrists. :) They are wonderful for smaller wrists, for anyone who appreciates good jewelry with a purpose. They'd be great for teens, girl or boy!

Artisan: Khaber-e-khosh

Artisan Khaber-e-khosh

In the turbulent capital of Kabul, Afghanistan, Baknazira Niazi has created a bright future for herself and dozens of other women. Under the Taliban regime, Baknazira's husband had difficulty finding work to support the family so Baknazira began making and embroidering dresses at home, and taking them to sell to local shops. When the Taliban lifted in 2001, this persevering mother of four sought training in business, marketing, and design and opened her own small shop to sell her wares.

Today, Khaber-e-khosh is a thriving shop, and Baknazira works with 46 other artisans, providing them with training and economic stability. Khaber-e-khosh offers courses in design, business, mathematics and other school subjects. The artisans earn a steady income from the goods they produce, and are able to support their families and send their children to school. Baknazira explains, "Now I am very happy, my life has changed so much, I have a much more comfortable life. My only desire is that I can continue to do this work and continue growing."

Artisan Brishna

Brishna lives in the city of Jalalabad with her parents, her four sisters and three brothers. Raised under the rule of the Taliban, Brishna never had the opportunity to finish her education, though it was her greatest wish. After meeting Brishna and learning of her desire to finish her education, Baknazira suggested she join Khaber-e-khosh so that she could take part in their educational courses.

Brishna now takes courses through Khaber-e-khosh and is also one of their most skilled embroiderers, earning a steady income that she uses to help support her large family while she continues her education.
