One of my Christmas gifts was a pair of earrings from Darling Daughter. They are not made from precious metals or valuable gem stones but from threads and wire. They were made by women displaced by the Syrian conflict.
The earrings are sold under the strap line “Drop Earrings Not Bombs” by a women’s cooperative known as “The Olive Tree Craft Cooperative”. I have no desire to be political but these women are just like you and I . They are mothers, grandmothers, daughters and friends just like you and I . They could be your sister. Caught up in global conflict is not fun.
