More bangles for no bucks
These ones are the result of a meeting at Kinfolk with Matt, a volunteer at Bicycles for Humanity. I contacted the organisation a little while ago with an idea for an accessories collaboration (which I’ll go into later when things start happening) and because he was in Africa at the time when he got my email, he kindly looked out for some accessories for me to kick things off. Here they are – what do you think these are made of?
At first glance I thought they were painted bone – but they are actually made from recycled PVC pipe. The pipes have a coloured coating, so the very clever, creative artists who made them carved out designs to reveal the underlying material (at least that’s what Matt thinks!).
These ones are by Paro Paro and were sent to me as a thank you for using the brand in the Fair@Square fashion show in December.The creator of this glossy gorgeousness is my newest follower (hi, Faye!)
Such a coincidence to receive two sets of bangles in one week, don’t you agree?
…and offering up a little wish so that more creativity and happy circumstances find me (and you!) in the near future!
oooh yay for bangles!!!! 😀http://www.closet-fashionista.com/
I adore bangles, I feel naked without them. Yours are even more special as they are recycled and ingenious. xxx
Wonderful post, great styling and great looks.Welcome to my blog birthday contest and prizes to win.Adam,http://fashionispartofme.blogspot.com
Great bangles. I looove the first set. The carved PVC pipe looks so striking.
I love the wood ones more but the carved PVC pipe idea is fantastic.
What a clever idea those PVC pipe bangles are. And the wooden ones are great. My hands and wrists are quite small, so bangles never stay on my arms properly. It makes me so sad!I will accept your wishes from the last photo and try to build something creative for dinner tonight!x
I love myself some bangles! Those are wonderful.
Such fantastic bangles! It seems that even in the world of accessories, when it rains it pours! 🙂
Love your bangles and love your photos. Very appropriate.
