10 years ago we first figured out how to impress the shape of the Blue Bird into the sand mold so that the melted, recycled aluminum could be poured to create this pendant! We celebrated big!
And now we return with a limited supply!
All of our jewelry incorporates upcycled and/or local materials.This reflects our values of positively impacting the earth and the local economy of Haiti, as well as the redemption of giving old things a 2nd Story. Our jewelry team has become experts in their craft since 2011 when we started out teaching the skills, crowded together on children’s school benches in Jubilee!
Local materials and local skills are married to make our beautiful aluminum pieces! Recycled aluminum is melted and poured into sand molds to set by makers who have been working with aluminum to make cooking pots for years. Each piece is labor-full. Which we love, because more labor means more people with jobs!
This product was touched by both of these incredible workshops!
