5-a-day brooches with the Zoe Project at JustTrade.co.uk


I'm a big fan of novelty jewellery, so when I spotted Just Trade's tweet about a carrot brooch I simply had to investigate. On their website I found lots of other fruity/vegetable-y delights, including a watermelon and a radish, all of which would just belong on the lapel of my velvet jacket.

The brooches are made by the Zoe Project, one of several producers that Just Trade work with. The Zoe Project is based in two shanty towns in Peru, where 23 ladies combine their crochet skills with 'contemporary design training' to produce this unusual collection of jewellery.

As well as providing a more reliable source of income, bringing the ability to pay for medical care, homes and education, the project has allowed many of the women to work from home, giving them an opportunity to spend more time with their families.

The brooches retail at £9.50 each. To browse the collection, click here.

P.S. There are also animal and flower brooches!

I love the radish, I'd love to have two and wear them like Luna Lovegood!

Such lovely amigurumi brooches! Love the carrot one as well. It is even greater because it is giving fair work to women. Great find Sadie!

I've been having a look through the animal and flower brooches as well as these and they're one of the cutest things I've ever seen, plus it's for a good cause so it's a win-win situation really!x
