This product is made fair trade in Chile from 100% recycled materials.
This cooperative in Chile is run by Ana in her home workshop. We love her impressive skill in using recycled materials to make beautiful designs. Her jewelry is made from high-quality recycled materials. While metalsmithing in Chile is typically a man’s job, Ana is challenging the status quo and not only exceeding in her craft, but teaching and hiring more women artisans to work alongside her.
This cooperative sources scrap metal from markets, melting it down and forming it into large thin sheets. They cut each shape by hand, then stamp to create unique textures. They weld pieces together, sand them down, and polish them for the final design. To maximize the use of all materials, the metal scraps are collected and melted down to be reused in new designs.
