Rivers of gems are transformed into a necklace of blue beauty. Sasina crafts the necklace with chip-cut lapis lazuli and turquoise-color dyed calcite. Knotting each one by hand with khaki threads, the necklace fastens at one of two lengths with dyed calcite beads.
The Women's Empowerment badge is awarded to female artisans or artisan groups that are led by women.
