This earring was inspired by Bessina, a refugee born in Sudan who endured hardships with her family until they were relocated to a refugee camp in Ethiopia. They spent many years there hoping for a better life; it is here she learned to make beaded jewelry.
In 2017, she and her husband and seven children were given permenant refuge in Houston, Texas. She is adjusting to her refugee life with the help of Mercy House Global, who is providing dignified work.
In February 2019, Bessina suffered the loss of one of her children. Our partners in Haiti, who need the work, have stepped in to begin creating this earring while Bessina grieves with her family.
