These needlepoint rose earrings incorporate the vibrant colors of the Hmong culture and are inspired by Hmong artistry. The dangling chain portrays the needle and thread, which the artisans use to craft these earrings.
The artisans who created these earrings are part of Craft Link, a nonprofit, that provides work for Vietnamese artisans, particularly artisans with disabilities and those who are part of ethnic minorities.
