Simple elegant design! Locally sourced, recycled aluminum circle pendant attached with soft leather cord at just the right length. Lands right below the neck, making a lovely statement piece.
This piece was touched by our aluminum AND jewelry workshops!
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. Then it is cleaned and handed over to another set of makers to be stamped with individual letters. Each piece is labor-full. Which we love, because more labor means more people with jobs!
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!
