Jewellery items exclusively made by 'Marama Shellcraft' as part of the Ba Women's Forum Fiji were recently promoted at Shapiro Gallery in Sydney during the annual Maketi Ples.
The two-week event created strong interest in Australia and resulted in over $2,000 worth of sales. Profits go directly to the Ba Women's Forum.
The Ba Women's Forum is a partner in an economic development project funded by the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research and delivered by USC Tropical Aquaculture Research (TAR).
This year's Maketi Ples is the first time the Ba Women's Forum has presented their items outside of Fiji and according to USC TAR's Commercial Development Manager, Theo Simos, the event was a huge success.
