Silver bat earrings (pendants)


Put a wing on it!

Bats can sleep suspended by a clever trick: when their heavy heads start to droop, the tendons in their legs automatically tighten, keeping them hooked. They are also very useful pollinators and insect eaters. These earrings are ideal for both spooky moments and to put these special little animals in the spotlight.

Ethically and lovingly made in Thailand

Nina Designs is a jewellery brand with a heart of gold. They make fair trade jewellery in Thailand and Bali and try to work as ethically and ecologically as possible. Their wages are well above national minimum wages, employees receive an extra month's wage as an end-of-year bonus. In addition, workers receive a food allowance for lunches. The company provides health care, with a doctor on call for staff medical needs. Expectant mothers receive education about prenatal care and safe delivery. Mothers receive three months paid maternity leave or six months on half pay. Their hospital fees are also covered. In Bali, fifty percent of managers at the production facility are women, a figure that is even more impressive in Indonesia than it would be in the EU.

Nina Designs uses as much recycled silver as possible, and for every package they send, they plant a tree that will be part of a so called "forest garden". They give out microloans to skilled women artisans and support different NGO's for human rights, literacy and the environment.
