This statement necklace is lightweight, made with job's tears seeds accented with silvery beads hand cast from recycled aluminum tin cans.
Natural grey + white tones in the seeds play well with most colours, and look especially dramatic with neutrals. A beautiful testament to Sustainable, Ethical fashion.
Necklace designed + made in Manitoba.
Distaff&Spindle sources the aluminum beads in our Necklace from AluMada, the 'Fonderie de l'Ocean Indien', based in the capital of the island country of Madagascar. Stephanie, the owner of AluMada, ensures a healthy and fair-paid work environment for the skilled Artisans who create the beads, each cast individually. Stephanie and I have known each other personally for many years and I am especially happy to partner with her in providing jobs for the Malagasy Artisans in her employ. Read more about AluMada and see photos of how the beads are handmade in the Artisan Profile here.
