NEW LIMITED EDITION CHARITY BRACELETS!
To our original range of semi-precious gem stones and tribal, brass pendants, we’ve added limited edition designs using treasures from different corners of the globe, like our Japanese seed stacks and Tibetan Buddhist knotted bracelets. All have been eagerly received by our Wild Tribe, so we’re very excited to launch our latest selection of limited-edition jewellery that comes from right here in the heart of Africa!
These special, handmade, recycled glass beads are uniquely strung together with a single steel Africa pendant to create a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece that not only looks and feels gorgeous but supports important conservation work in Zambia’s Luangwa Valley.
Behind everything we create is the motivation to spread the word about nature conservation, raise awareness about the plight of wildlife, and give people from far and wide the opportunity to help save endangered species.
Just like with our five other charity bracelets, 50% of the retail price of every charity bracelet purchased is donated to its affiliated charity. For this product, we have partnered with Chipembele Wildlife Education Trust in Zambia, which is dedicated to teaching children and young people living in remote and rural parts of the Luangwa Valley about the importance of wildlife and the environment.
Chipembele works in partnership with another of our Wild in Africa associated charities, the Zambian Carnivore Programme, which has its focus on conserving lions in Zambian national parks. Working both separately and together, these two organisations are doing incredible work to facilitate the harmonious co-existence of people and wildlife in Zambia and we couldn’t be prouder to support them both through our sustainable, unique jewellery designs.
The manufacture of our limited-edition glass beads is also based in Zambia at Tribal Textiles, where over 100 local men and women in the South Luangwa valley are offered training and employment in creating beautiful painted fabrics. This innovative organisation has now started a recycling plant to try and manage waste in the natural area and utilise recyclable items. Using glass to create these beads for Wild in Africa is one of these pioneering projects, and the results are beautiful!
Because these beads are each individually made (watch the video of the whole process below), no two are the same. Colours may vary and shapes and sizes are organic. We just love the way each bead, and therefore each bracelet, looks different. We’re currently stocking just a handful of each colour – blues, greens, oranges, and clear glass – and Shannon Wild has designed each one. Each bracelet has been photographed and labelled with the size that specific bracelet comes in, so what you see listed in our online shop is what is available.
Remember, they are limited, so make sure you choose the one you love as soon as you can – once it is sold, there won’t be another one quite like it again!
Stack them or style them with your other Wild in Africa gems and #WearYourKarma proudly, knowing that your personal collection of bracelets has been made with love from sustainably sourced – and now recycled! – materials. We can’t wait to hear what you think.
