Jewellery Made From Recycled Cans
Some of the cutest recycled jewellery are these dancing girl earrings, made of recycled wire and scraps of tin. Made by the young women from Afrika Pamoja a Kenyan social enterprise where the girls learn to make handicrafts so as to earn a living. Many of the young women come from the Obunga slums, the most destitute area of Kisumu in Kenya and they carry on a long tradition of making items from recycled materials, a source of income for many men and women in Africa.
