Indian Mosaic Frame—Large
Each unique frame is made out of recycled multicolored pieces of broken glass by Indian women employed at Rahab’s Rope who have been shattered like the broken glass, but by the tragedy of sex trafficking. As the women who handmake each frame heal physically, spiritually, and emotionally, they, too, become new, beautiful creations. Glass is smooth, not sharp. Frame measures 8-by-0.5-by-10. Fits a 5x7 photo.
About this Artisan
Mary grew up in an orphanage in India with a bleak outlook for her future. When time came for her to leave the orphanage she was deceived by an offer of marriage and found herself instead in a brothel. She escaped and tried to commit suicide multiple times, the last time by eating glass. A member of Rahab’s Rope artisan group found her dying in the street and brought her to the center. Many young women like Mary have found a lifeline at Rahab’s Rope, where they discover new opportunities as they make handcrafted jewelry.
