From afar, it’s a glistening silver bracelet, but look closer and you’ll be amazed that a strand of ribbon binds many aluminum pull tabs together.

The Birdie Bracelets by More Than Hip are flexible in fit—stretchy and squeezable. They are accentuated with ribbons and leather strands for a dainty look and come in many colors.

These bracelets are hand-crafted by a group of women in Guatemala City; this gives them a source of income and influences the developing economy. The process of transforming something that is seemingly invaluable into a socially responsible accessory is amazing. The bracelets are a rewarding purchase for consumers and a fulfilling deed for the creators.
