Handpainted black and yellow recycled glass contemporary necklace

Regular price £22

Black and yellow recycled glass bead necklace with on a soft suede black cord. The glass beads are held in place by a hidden silver bar which provides some structure. This contemporary necklace has a smooth elongated glass bead at the back connecting the suede cord ends and is completely adjustable to the needs of the wearer. 

Made from 100% recycled glass beads made by Ghanaian beadmaking artisans. 
Every stage of the bead creation involves true craftsmanship. Each individual bead is made completely by hand; ground into powder, coloured dye added to the mix, fired in a kiln and shaped on a grinder. They have no uniformity and all come with their own quirks- much like us. Starting their life as disposed glass bottles, these beads perfectly demonstrate how we can turn trash into treasure and create something beautiful and new from the things we have discarded as waste.

In an effort to preserve the traditional beadmaking craft, 10% of the profits from the sale of this product will be donated to the Baobab foundation. A small school in Cape Coast, Ghana, where children with physical/learning disabilities are given a creative education in vocational courses that enable them to support themselves in the future.

This ethically made necklace adds a pop of colour to any outfit, perfect for those who want beautiful pieces of jewellery without buying from chainstores.
