Our funky Darwin necklace is made up of a collection of different recycled paper beads and re-purposed leather. This piece has no metal, slips easily over your head and is suitable for people with allergies.
All our beads are dipped in a resin and dried 3 times. Although this makes the beads durable and water resistant, they are not waterproof. We do not recommend that they are worn in the shower or while swimming.
All of our leather is from recycled bags and clothes bought from second hand shops or donated. As our jewelry is handmade, no two pieces are ever alike making them completely one of a kind.
All of our jewelry is upcycled, designed & handmade in the Philippines following fair trade principles.
