Product Description

We all have days we need a little inspiration. Wear yours on your wrist with our recycled glass and brass charm bracelets. They're a great reminder for yourself, but also as a gift for any loved one. 

Simon and Alice are a married couple who live outside of Nairobi. They and their small team work out of their yard. To make the recycled glass products, they collect glass bottles from bars around their city. They sort them by color (the cobalt blue color comes from Skyy Vodka bottles, the sky blue color comes from Bombay Sapphire bottles, the black color comes from Baileys Irish Cream bottles, and the amber, clear, and green colors come from various beer or liquor bottles). After the bottles are washed, the labels need to be removed and the bottles broken into little pieces. The little pieces of glass are then put into a kiln to be heated and formed into colorful shapes which the artists use to create beautiful bracelets, earrings, necklaces, and nativities.

  • Made by hand in Kenya
  • Recycled glass with brass charm
  • Measures approximately 6-1/2" to 7-1/2" in diameter, depending on the length of the brass charm. The longer the word, the larger the bracelet. Courage and Strength will be larger. Joy and Love smaller.
  • Due to the handcrafted nature of recycling glass, colors may vary making every piece unique
