Ann-Made Jewelry ~ Review ~

Supporting Recycling and Creative Solutions for a Cleaner, Healthier Planet

Ann-Made jewelry is Ann Skydell Harmon’s unique creation made from recycled soda can tabs to remind us that a little creativity can put many discarded materials to new use. The Bracelets were the first item in the line and were originally conceived as a project for her alternative school art students. The popularity of the bracelets were immediately apparent as Ann, her daughters, and fellow teachers received numerous enthusiastic comments each time they wore theirs. Earrings and Pendants have now joined the bracelets in this unique line of jewelry.

I was Blessed to receive a Beautiful Magnolia Bracelet to review…

Ann-Made bracelets are handcrafted from 22 recycled soda can tabs (the men’s version uses 26). Each tab is hand-selected, washed and polished to ensure quality and high luster, then intricately woven into a one-size fits most design using either silver or gold elastic. The colorful variety of beads and stones are woven directly into the bracelet holding them firmly in place. The result is a beautiful bracelet that is strong, resilient, and long lasting.

Because natural gem stones are often used in their jewelry, each stone will vary slightly. And, of course, everything is handmade. This ensures you will definitely have a one-of-a-kind piece.

I LOVE MY BRACELET! I love everything about it! I’m loving that it’s made from something recycled that’s not polluting our landfills and instead is now a beautiful piece of jewelry! I love how sturdy yet delicate looking this piece is! It’s perfect with just about every summer outfit I have. I plan on wearing this a lot this summer! It’s light and breezy and reminds me of carefree summer days! Thank you Ann for taking something plain and ordinary and turning it into a wearable piece of art!

Price: $18.50 each (plus shipping & handling)

The recycled tabs Ann uses are purchased from a non-profit group in New Jersey dedicated to teaching students of all ages the importance of recycling. They place tab collection containers in schools and municipalities around the state, then sell the tabs to aluminum recyclers -donating all of the proceeds to a variety of charities. Ann chose them as her source for tabs due to the important educational and charitable work they do. In addition, she helps their cause by choosing to pay more for the tabs than they would normally receive from the recycler.
