This bracelet is constructed of small wooden squares and intricate black, gold and silver beads. Each wooden part is first cut out from scrap pieces, carved into squares and then polished for a clean finish. Since the bracelet is carved from several different pieces of scrap wood, each bracelet represents a brilliant combination of wood patterns. The bracelets are stretchable to easily put on and fit any size hand.
These bracelets are designed by a group in the slum of Kibera called “Victory Youth Group.” Unable to find employment, these young men and women began looking around their slum for trash, which they transformed into beautiful pieces of jewelry. Determined to forge their own futures, they used their creativity to make a business. Each bracelet is eco-friendly through the use of scrap materials, and a testament to their journey.
