Prosperity Hens

Details

Hang a garland of the colorful hens in your doorway or kitchen to invite a bit of prosperity into your own home. Hens have been an Indian symbol of prosperity for centuries, given as gifts to celebrate life's milestones. These particularly charming hens were created in Northern India by a women's craft co-op. The women carefully choose the colored glass beads, jewel-tone fabrics, silver ornaments, and the unique tinkle of the hand-formed bronze bell to reflect their individual personalities, so each strand is unique. These are a Fair Trade item, ensuring that the women who hand make them are paid a fair wage. You may find similar hens elsewhere for considerably less, but that pretty much guarantees that the people who made them were not paid a fair wage.

Almost pointless to make

Almost pointless to make a comment with this many - 5 - stars, but I'm going to anyway. These are sweet - and they do look like hens. Give a nice, warm, homey feel to whatever room you add them too. I had them in my laundry room next to my back door for a splash of color and decoration. They got caught in the door and broke so I will be reordering as I liked them that much.
