The Village Council
Your answers straight from the village experts
Many traditional artisans employ the handcrafted techniques of their ancestors, which favored a slow, methodical approach in a small workshop, as opposed to mass production. Today, they preserve these methodologies while intentionally distinguishing their approaches from those of large factories. Respect for the environment, and for animal and human life drive the artwork itself. Natural materials are often a sign that a product is eco-friendly. Additionally, many artisans look for ways to reuse or recycle in their artwork. Some choose to repurpose old wood or fabric. Some recycle glass beads or up-cycle plastic and discarded paper. Others follow practices that conserve resources, like water and energy, and are mindful of the pollutants they release into the environment. Shopping from organizations that promote eco-friendly products is the best way to ensure that you are receiving a unique item that does not damage the world through its making.

Awesome Monkey Pendant
This monkey pendant is awesome! The quality workmanship is outstanding. This monkey has substantial weight and lays nicely on the neck. The chain the money hangs from is beautiful in design and also has substantial weight. The monkey does come off the chain so you could wear just the chain by itself. I get compliments every time I wear this necklace. Its so comfortable to wear even though you know its there. This monkey is adorable and is so cute. It makes me feel happy when I wear this pendant! This is a beautiful piece of jewelry and Im so glad I purchased it. You wont be disappointed!
