Selling through Discovered creates more income for artisans. They can set the price they want to receive for the products themselves. By cutting out all middlemen, artisans receive at least 20% more for their products. This is what we call fairer trade.
Discovered is dedicated to creating positive impact. Not all artisans work alone. Sometimes they work in groups or collectives, are helped by not for profit organizations or work for social businesses. We select our partners to ensure more artisans have work make at least 10% above average wage.
We are committed to crafts. We encourage artisans to make products using traditional crafts and techniques. Making products mainly by hand or with easy accessible tools or common available machines. We believe this is important to keep alive.
We love handmade. We also feel strongly about preserving the world we live in. That’s why we work with our partners & artisans to stimulate using local materials and natural resources, and paying special attention to packaging & shipping.
Product story
Shipping & returns
We made a series of similar pendants of different shapes and sizes, all were created from 2mm square profile silver wire, etched on the surface for a more handmade feel. The two organic shape loops are connected with a tiny silver wire on 3 points, the wire is then soldered so they can't come apart. The wire is also applied on a fourth point that serves as a hook to pass the sterling silver snake-chain that is 50 cm long. The smooth chain contrasts nicely with the more rough language of the geometrical pendant. The necklace had 3 other similar versions, where the shape and length of the necklace chain varies, as shown on the last photo. The pendant is entirely handmade in 95% silver, typical of Thai Karen hilltribe silversmiths that still use traditional tools and techniques in silver-making process. The necklace comes with a traditional Thai package that can be a lovely gift or just simply jewelry storage. We send all our packages with tracking number for safer shipping. Length of the chain: 50 cm Loops are between 4-6 cm across widest point
