Ingeniously created out of recycled Guinness bottle tops this unique Fair Trade pendant will really catch the eye.
• Guinness recycled bottle top pendant. The waste bottle tops are collected in and around Mathare slum in Nairobi, Kenya and are cleaned, sanitised, pressed to flatten and then formed into various shapes by local artisans.
• Made out of two bottle tops, so the famous Guinness design in yellow & black features on each side.
• Recycled copper wire is used to add detail and for the hook at the top.
• The necklace strap itself is made from waxed black leather.
• Light and comfortable to wear – time for something ethical and a little bit different for those who like a drop of “the black stuff!”!
• Part of a range of “beer” themed ethical jewellery. (Click on the “Guinness” Tag above to reveal the selection, or see the product suggestions below.)
Hand-crafted with great skill by Fair Trade artisans at Zakale Creations in the slums of Nairobi Kenya – bringing you a distinctive product using recycled materials and displaying the vibrancy of African culture.
DIMENSIONS – the diameter of the bottle tops is 3.8 cm.
When opened out, the leather necklace has a total length of approximately 70 cm.
