About Drop Earrings Not Bombs
Drop Earrings Not Bombs is based in Istanbul, Turkey. Syrian women displaced from their homeland design and handcraft each pair.

The aim of this project is to foster the empowerment of women who are natural leaders, all within the creative and collaborative space of a community center, a home to families, and a hub for ideas. The weavers are able to work based on their family schedule, which gives them flexibility and respect for their family needs. 

The collective has access to Turkish and English language support to ease the difficulties of social integration. Additionally, computer classes alongside entrepreneurship skills are fostering the empowerment of the group, towards a future where their lives are in their own hands.

Product Care
The earrings are made to be worn comfortably every day. We recommend that you remove your earrings before washing, swimming, sleeping, or exercising.

  • Care for plated jewelry: Silver and gold naturally tarnish over time with exposure to the environment. It can be cleaned with a silver or gold dip solution and clean dry with a soft cloth. Avoid contact with water and other liquids. To ensure that tarnishing doesn’t spoil your earrings, apply any perfume and facial products before putting on your earrings.

  • Brass: Being an alloy it will gradually patina over time with exposure to oxygen and moisture. This effect can be removed with a polish if you prefer a brass cleaner or a dry cloth.

    Ingredients you may already have at home can be used too: mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste, rub onto the surface with a cloth, rinse off with water, and buff dry.

Note
Please note that due to the handcrafted nature of this product, your order may differ slightly from the image.

Drop Earrings Not Bombs is a small project created in 2017 by a women-led social enterprise Muhra, in Istanbul, Turkey. Muhra is an Arabic word for the female foal, representing female leaders’ strength and vitality. They teach Syrian female artisans to design and handcraft these beautiful earrings.

This project provides enough flexibility for the Syrian artisans. They can work based on their family schedule to find the right balance between taking care of family needs while having a dignified income.
