About the product:

This upcycled wrapped bracelet can be worn as necklace as shown in the third picture. The recycled glass beads are ethically made in Africa and Indonesia by disadvantaged artisans with old, discarded and broken glass such as bottles, windshields, mirrors, etc. I selected and matched the beads to create a bohemian style of jewelry. 

By purchasing this jewelry, you not only help those in need from Africa and Indonesia, you also help reducing waste. 

What you get is the one shown in the first and second pictures. I sold couples of this after it was worn in a eco fashion show.
