My boyfriend just got back from Costa Rica and brought me these earrings. He plays classical guitar and went to play in a guitar festival. And he told me he had the hardest time finding something made in Costa Rica. I understand because I had the same problem in Puerto Rico. I wanted to purchase something made in Puerto Rico and so many of the shops had souvenir items made in China or Indonesia – not Puerto Rico. And apparently the same is true in Costa Rica.
But, her persevered and found this market. And after looking around he found earrings. Handmade earrings. Made in Costa Rica.
These lovely ladies made the green earrings with all of the wire components and also the orange wire and string earrings.
And, this gentleman made the feather earrings. I appreciate my boyfriend thinking about me and going to the trouble to find something handmade. I love the earrings and the feather ones feel like whispers when they touch my neck.
