It’s a common signature; x’s and o’s. They are classic symbols that represent love, care and affection.
They can serve as a reminder that we are loved and thereby prompting us to show love to others.
The lead artisan, Eunice, is the main jewelry maker as well as a designer. Once unemployed, after losing her job as a social worker, she is now moving up through the company. She enjoys her work as it allows her to be creative.
How proud she must be to be earning an income from creating these stylish studs earrings, forged from recycled brass.
There is something beautifully symbolic here. Because of Christ’s love for us, He submitted to go through the flames in our place. And through this redemption, we have been repurposed from a life of sin without God, to an abundant life restored to the Father.
We reflect this love when we remember the oppressed and the downtrodden. We can show marginalized women around the world that they are loved, not forgotten, when we do something as simple as give them our business.
