One of the hottest trends at the moment are these handcrafted recycled rubber flip flop necklaces made by talented women artisans in Mali.
These statement necklaces make an impact and ooze a sophisticated style.
First the women and children collect the flip flop sandals from their communities, sterilize them and then the women literally melt the rubber over a hot coal pit and use metal rods to create the "tube" of rubber. After the rubber has dried, the second color is applied by turning the rod and swirling the second color over the first. Each necklace is finished with quality leather ends securing the strands together. Leather loop and knot make for easy closure. Each necklace hangs approx. 11" in length and measures approx. 22" in total size.
