Aluminum Bangle Set


The Product:

Set of 5 hand smelted aluminum bracelets made from recycled aluminum here in Gonaives Haiti!  The aluminum is melted down and poured into a sand cast. It's an amazing process to watch!  After they cool, they're popped out of the casting and cleaned with a steel brush. It is a lot of work, but we love the way they turn out! 
It is a signature piece from 2nd Story Goods!

The Story:

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!
