Story Behind the Art: The founders of BIO Imaginarte take the mantra 'Reduce Reuse and Recycle' to heart. The focus of BIO when it began in 1992 was educating Mexico in the need to protect and restore the environment. Working with women who live in several villages as an aspect of its education efforts, BIO helped designed bags and other functional products that are made from manufactured materials reusing aluminum pop tops, rubber from tires and plastic billboards, as well as recycling paper and candy wrappers. The women are paid a fair price for each piece that they make which promotes the beauty of handmade products while addressing one of the main causes of environmental deterioration in Mexico, poverty.

This bracelet is very fun but it is much larger that I expected. I have very small wrists, so perhaps it should be offered in different sizes??? I can wear it on my bicep. Probably won't wear it very often because of this.
I really loved the concept of this item, and was not disappointed when it arrived (quickly and well packaged I might add)! It is a large bracelet, and does not look cheap or gaudy (my husband thought it was kind of silly being made out of trash though, but said it was cute anyway!) It is very lightweight. My only complaint is that it is kind of large in diameter, and I have slender hands, so will have to be careful it doesn't fall off while wearing it (haven't worn it out of the house yet.) the gold that you see in the photo is a metal substance (doesn't say what) so will probably last a long time.
Too tight to wear over long-sleeved winter tunics. Fit fine over my large wrists. The theory of people making money through recycling crafts is wonderful. The bracelet does look like pull tabs, which is only logical since it is made of pull tabs. I'm not sure if I'll be brave enough to wear one and give the other away, or give both to a thrift store.
This is a statement bracelet. it is so COOL and such a great conversation piece. I really love it and have worn it a few times. I have seen these before, but never at this price and I got this the last minute as it was in my sidebar. SO GLAD! Now all I want is the matching BLING purse. 5 STARS!

How accurate was the sizing? SUits me fine, but this is a large piece, so be prepared for mininalizing other pieces.
I bought this for my daughter as a surprise. She loves all things out of the ordinary and was thrilled when she got it. She wears it all the time and is amazed by the number of people that compliment her on it!
