Soley means “sun” in Haitian Creole, and under the Caribbean Sun is our favorite place to be. Made with a locally-sourced upcycled hammered aluminum disk, you can turn even the rainy days into a sunny one with this simple, yet bold piece.
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!
