Founded in 2012 by Oakland native Laurel Gunnarson, The Didi Jewelry Project creates beautiful jewelry while helping women in India create beautiful lives for themselves. They work with women who are infected and affected by HIV/AIDS by teaching them jewelry making and then selling their products. The main goal of The Didi Jewelry Project is to provide these women with full time employment so that they are able to support themselves and their families and lead positive, confident lives.
