This bracelet is made by Zakale Creations in Mathare slum, Nairobi. Zakale Creations are experts at creating unique jewellery from recycled materials. We love their innovative use of bottle tops which are collected from near by bars. Young people from the slum are paid for the bottle tops they collect and bring to Zakale Creations.
The bottle tops are then cut to size and carefully filed. They are glued together so that the bracelet looks good from every angle, with each bottle top bead being double sided.
