These illustrious little earrings are made from marbles thrown at Israeli soldiers in Bethlehem. They were tenderly gathered off the streets and masterfully crafted into fashionable items. Now you can help carry the weight of military oppression wherever you go.They helpfully promote a photo of a woman slinging a marble, which pretty much belies their claim to "not support violence in any shape or form":
We do not support violence in any shape or form but neither do we want the struggle here to be forgotten. This is a nonviolent way to take something off the floor and continue to remind ourselves of the unheard voice of Palestinians.
We have already sold over 30 pairs to Palestinians and international visitors in Bethlehem at Christmas markets. Join the many women who have chosen to merge their fashion choices and political persuasions into one elegant decorative piece.
Here's a more typical photo of someone slinging one of these future earrings in Bethlehem that does not involve a young women:
Israeli soldiers have been injured by these non-violent projectiles. Here's an article about one who had to be hospitalized after being hit in the neck with a marble.
The same shop also sells Christmas tree ornaments made from spent tear gas canisters.
UPDATE: The store owner stopped selling them, He wrote in the comments:
I decided to take down the earrings from the etsy store yesterday. I realized they don't convey the message of peace as much as I would like.
If you have any questions I'm happy to answer them. It seems a lot of assumptions and accusations are being made, and I hope you would all be fair and give me an opportunity to speak into them.
