- the story
Vibrant and versatile, beautiful bangles can be found jangling on the wrists of women the world over, and while they may look like just another stylish accessory, for Indian women these lovely bracelets possess special cultural meaning. Married women wear beaded bangles symbolize the bonds of love and marriage. Once broken, these shimmering beads are usually bound for the landfill, but a collective of fair-trade artisans in Jamkhed, India, have discovered how to restore these accents to their former splendor.
This mirror is ringed with gold-flecked, multi-colored beads reclaimed from broken bangles. A dazzling conversation piece that supports fair wages and safe conditions for local craftsmen, this looking glass brighten any room and make for a thoughtful and socially responsible gift. Handmade in India.
