In 2002, as Zimbabwe refugees in South Africa, Gugulethu Mapuranga, his family and friends created the micro-enterprise of GuguCrafters. Realizing that the craft sector in South Africa could provide a much-needed sustainable income, the artisans honed their skills and designed unique jewelry items from tin cans and beads.
While hoping they had found safe haven from the political turmoil and economic collapse in Zimbabwe, the group found itself in 2008 the victim of xenophobic attacks, with their small workshop looted. After two months, the group was able to purchase new tools and materials with fair trade customers advances and begin again making unusual jewelry pieces from their homes in Cape Town.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

These are delightful earrings in that they are funky, playful, and a clever use of old aluminum cans.Read More
I was very disappointed with this purchase. Although the earnings look very cool on the site, I was surprised by how cheap they were when I opened the box. I definitely do not suggest purchasing them.. There are better things to spend money on!Read More
The earings I received are scratched and do not say coke or coca cola. Only the "C" for coke is visible and "please recycle". The tin is also dented on one earing. It would be hard to tell they are coke earings. I was so looking forward based on the reviews. I also ordered another pair of earings and a necklace form Kenya which were of great quality. I will order from World Stock again because I have received some exquisite jewelry in the past and also because of the people the purchase serves. I hope they take this as constructive criticism to improve on the quality.Read More
All my friends love these. They are very unique and add a lot of personality to any outfit. They aren't to big or to heavy and I think they are great!Read More
Just received them in the mail yesterday- secure while minimal packaging. I was concerned that these earrings would be large and awkward but they are actually very reasonable- a little over an inch in length. Seeing as these are made from printed aluminum cans, I expect that the paint will chip with time, but I believe that these will have a nifty recycled look for quite some time. They are now one of my favorite pairs of earrings.Read More
I received these as a gift. I love that they are recycled and they still look cool.Read More
I purchased 2 pairs of these earrings - one orange (Fanta can maybe) and the other red (Coke can) - for my nieces. The earrings are darling and I know they will love them!Read More
