Beautiful fairtrade necklaces

*Stella's Story

I was abandoned when I was a young girl. I was left traveling from house to house until finally my mother found me and sold me to a man. Terrified, I ran away and eventually ended up living with my uncle. Not long after, he was diagnosed with cancer. He could not afford the medical bills so he sold me to work in exploitation. When I got there, I was told I owed the boss two months wages and had to sign a contract to work for him for two years. After the contract was up, he said I still owed more money. With no other means to pay off the debt, I felt trapped. I had no choice but to continue in the work.

One day women from the Starfish Project came to the brothel and befriended me. After six months and many visits by them, I realized their concern for me was sincere. I began a new life in the Starfish Project shelter, and I hope to one day have a family of my own.

From our customers

  • EPHAS offers fantastic customer service, postage is reasonable and quick and the products are simply beautiful. It is easy to promote such gorgeous pieces when they have a story behind them like EPHAS does, and my customers appreciate my sourcing products that are Fair Trade and align with their beliefs. (So not only are the products amazing, but they also sell well.) Wouldn't hesitate to recommend purchasing EPHAS products

  • I have been thinking about your products a lot. They have struck a cord with me. The story cards were very useful and helped me to clearly understand what Starfish Project does and the important work they are doing. I am really glad to have met EPHAS - thank you for introducing me to your products and giving me the opportunity to support such a meaningful cause.

  • I am always really excited with the new jewellery designs that we order in from EPHAS. The entire range has been very popular with our customers and ever since it landed at One Village, it has been flying out of the shop! We have now increased our range of Starfish Project jewellery to keep up with the demands of our customers. We feel very fortunate to share in the journey with EPHAS to create a brighter future for the women who are behind the beautiful jewellery. Thank you for always providing us with excellent customer care.
