It’s always nice to support local businesses, especially if they are small or just started out. In this case, we actually bought these earrings in a very tiny shop. We found it by coincidence while strolling aimlessly through the streets of Bogota.
The shop was in a small alley that lead to a market with an amazing variety of all sorts of shops: food, clothes, accessories, paintings, handicraft… Since it was our last day in the city, and we only got there little before closing-time, we couldn’t really roam around a lot. Probably this was our luck though, otherwise I would have spent hours and way too much money in there…
The two little flowers are typical for the region around Bogota. The artist used a special technique to dry the flowers and later “freeze” them in the glass. It’s a unique gift or something special to wear with your favourite outfit.
