★ ABOUT OUR ARTISTS ★
Work available in the EWI Etsy Shop is handmade by immigrant and refugee women artists living in the DC Metro area who are members of our organization. We also carry work by supporting artists - American artists who are donating a percentage of their sales' proceeds to our organization. Because we have work by many different artist members available in our Shop, each product description will include a short bio of the artist so that you can learn more about them.

★ ETSY COSTS AND PROCEEDS ★
Whenever an artist's item is sold, the creating artist receives 50% of the proceeds. EWI receives the remaining 50%, which we use to fund our Workforce and Entrepreneurship Training Center, Client Services (individual career mentoring and business coaching), and Micro-Enterprise Program (MEP). The organization takes responsibility for all shipping and listing expenses, as well as the Etsy sales fees.

★ EWI PRODUCTS ★
For items that are considered EWI products and made in-house, the profit breakdown is different than that described above. We buy all the necessary materials, teach an artist who wants to earn supplemental income how to make the item, and then pay them upfront per product for their completed inventory. Examples of these products include our felt soap line and our 3-in-1 eyeglass necklaces.

★ SHIPPING ★
We ship all items First Class within 5 business days of having received payment. Please message or email us (Shop@ewint.org) if you need your item sent immediately. If you'd like your purchase to be sent to someone else as a gift, we offer gift-wrapping free of charge; make sure to indicate the purchase is a present in the Message to Seller.

Please message or email us (info@ewint.org) if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!

Besides being striking, the necklace is incredibly soft! Just beautiful. This is my second necklace created by Mercedes and is a work of art that would sell for five times as much elsewhere.
