This pretty, mixed-up bracelet is a real treat of handmade recycled charms and beads highlighted with swarovski crystals and tiny nuggets of sterling silver.
This bracelet illustrates all the skills and techniques of our skilled crafts people. Some of the techniques used have been around for thousands of years.
To make these beautiful beads used glass is gathered from all over West Africa and is roughly ground down and individually reformed using clay molds fired in an earth kiln. Every bead is completely unique and all colours are produced purely from the original glass with no added chemicals.
The recycled brass is also from West Africa and comes from old plumbing fittings, collected and transformed using the ancient Asante Lost Wax Process. Each charm is first hand molded in bees wax giving evey piece it's own particular identity.
The coconut charms are hand crafted by a disabled group on the remote island of Rodrigues inthe Indian Ocean. Coconut is one of the very few resources in excess on the island and this craft unit offers valuable work to people with few opportunities.
