DIY Iraca Sunglass Chain Kit: Black

  • Iraca spheres (22) pieces
  • Eyeglass holder ends (gold, two pieces)
  • French wire (gold, two pieces)
  • Gold-plated crump tubes (two pieces)
  • Soft Flex Beading Wire

Each iraca piece is 100% handmade in Colombia and unique in it's own way. Colors and patterns may vary slightly from photo.

Soraya's Note: We add our artisanal and unique touch to every trend. We are excited to launch our iraca-inspired sunglass chain. Every iraca sphere is handmade by our talented artisan, Yanira in Sandona, Colombia. As a way to bring our SH community closer together and to provide a little distraction from the daily wave of negative news, we decided to offer our first-ever DIY project. YES, make your very own color combination and create your own unique SORAYA HENNESSY sunglass chain.

This project is meant for those of you with basic DIY skills and it’s meant to be fun and creative. You will need a small tool kit (LINK) to punch a small hole in the iraca spheres. You could also add a gold bead (OPTIONAL) to finish your sunglasses chain. This project will take less than an hour. Now it's your chance to get creative!

Female Empowerment

Global Appeal 

Fair Trade And Sustainable Practices

By working closely with local craftsmen and women, Soraya provides a stable source of employment to over 40 Wayuu families, rejecting the fast fashion business model in favor of a more sustainable, environmentally responsible production process.

SORAYA HENNESSY is committed to advancing the economic rights of indigenous women in Colombia and Venezuela. Through offering waged two times industry average for their art, Soraya empowers Wayuu women to become entrepreneurs themselves, as well as encouraging innovation and providing education and training to them and their families. Soraya also makes sure to meet with her artisans whenever she can, and knows the creator of each bag personally. She shuns faceless mass-production in favour of this fair-trade alternative approach, simultaneously supporting vulnerable Wayuu communities and raising awareness about sustainable practices. As all weaving is done by hand, in the home of the artisan without factories or machines, SORAYA HENNESSY champions responsible business practices that supports Wayuu people and the planet.
