Item details

This listing is for 25 recycled metal beads. They have a lovely, unique pattern.

These beads are resued / recycled / repurposed / upcycled from old jewellery. These beads all come from secondhand jewellery from local charity shops. This creative reuse is a form of recycling that helps to minimise the environmental impact of these beads as they will now find a second home rather than going to a landfill.

Ethical advantages of buying secondhand:
• You are reusing a perfectly good material that would otherwise end up in a landfill
• You reduce the impact to the planet compared to buying new materials. Buying new would mean a larger carbon footprint (extracting resources from the earth, using petroleum/water/chemicals to produce, increased shipping around the world)
• As Coastal Desert Supply's suppliers are all local charity shops, you are not putting money into corporations that exploit child labour, deplete the environment, or disregard workers' rights.

Where do I source my secondhand beads?
All of my recycled beads come from local charity shops (my favourites are The British Heart Foundation, Myton Hospice, Cats Protection, and Oxfam), so part of this sale benefits those charities. I use as much of the used jewellery as possible; most beads end up here, but some beads and most chains, clasps and jump rings end up being reused in my handmade jewellery shop, The Coastal Desert:
