ARTISAN | ETHICAL
Founded by Carina Tomietto, Finders and Makers is a unique collective that sources fair trade fashion accessories and ethical gifts from artisans around the world.
The Magnetic Collection features a range of hand-knotted cast iron pieces that have been inspired by Ancient Egypt’s pharaohs and is the work of Finder - Tuhina.
A textiles designer by trade, Tuhina lives in Greater Noida (about one hour away from Delhi). Her bright and airy studio now provides a haven for women who were previously unable to work due to cultural restrictions, lack of transport and childcare options.
The Silver Neck Ribbon features tiny cast-metal pieces that are connected with coloured cotton and separated by a handmade knot in black or deep red. Each piece is lovingly crafted and designed to flow with a silken movement, conjuring images of the waters of the Nile.
The Magnetic Collection features a range of intricately hand-knotted cast iron pieces forming unique and stunningly beautiful jewellery.
This original stunning piece can be worn buttoned up or draped open for a different look. Hundreds of cast iron metal pieces are knotted together with a silver-grey cotton. Little handmade cotton tassels add a wonderful and distinctive touch. The long pieces of draping silver chain add movement to the piece.
Every item also comes shipped in a soft, vegetable-tanned leather pouch which has been handmade by a family-owned business with a history of traditional leather vegetable tanning methods. This organic and natural approach results in stunning pouches that are hard-wearing and will develop a gorgeous patina over the years.

Use a soft polishing cloth regularly to effectively clean your jewellery.
Apply beauty products such as perfume, hairspray or deodorant before wearing your jewellery as certain chemicals in these products may damage the finish.
Always remove your jewellery before swimming, bathing, doing household chores or using abrasive cleaners.
To avoid black markings either on your skin or the jewellery, be sure to clean it regularly. These markings are due to trapped oil and dirt and can be easily cleaned.
Store your jewellery in the Finders and Makers leather pouch.
