Story Behind the Art:

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.

  • Unusual and lightweight earrings.
    Verified Purchase

    These earrings are playful, and best of all lightweight. I bought these for my daughter who does not like heavy earrings. I got them in red, and they go really well with jeans. Recycling aluminum into funky earrings is a great idea,
