I’d like to know what artisan handicrafts from Otavalo (Ecuador) would think about these earrings. I bought these ceramic beads in the Otavalo Saturday market, where local villagers sell their handmade products on the sidewalk.
Handmade red ceramic beads swing earrings with multiple small silver balls, suspended with brass chain allowing the lightweight earrings to swing gently with your every move.
These earrings combine two different worlds, the Andean indigenous craftwork and the know-how of nomadic tribes from Pakistan. I’m sure the Otavalo artisans would love this odd mix.

The metal used in most Afghan Kuchi tribal jewelry is made of a mixed metal alloy called “gilet”.
Some of the components are handmade by nomadic tribes of Central Asia. There may be some imperfections such as scratches or dents, certain irregularities associated with age I always try to be as accurate and honest as possible when I describe ítems. These are not considered flaws and add to the overall look of the items. Please email me if you have any questions.
