Friday Photo: Recycled metal cuff bracelet artists

When we were in Haiti last month, we photographed or re-photographed the artists with whom we work.  Here are Three Stone Steps new cuff bracelet artists, James and Romel.

While, and yet again, we don’t have these cuff bracelets on our site, we do have other recycled metal cuff bracelets and other jewelry, including recycled earrings and recycled rings available right here.

If you’re wondering, yes, I requested that Wonder Woman pose.  It works quite well, yes?

Waiting for Haiti

I wasn’t able to get back to Haiti this year. No need to go into it, but it just didn’t work out.

But, that doesn’t mean that I’m not getting some new Haitian goods. I am! I am very excited to announce that new metal cuffs are on the way, as are very amazing recycled hanging Christmas trees. (You can call them a Hannukah bush if you’d like, and they’d work for Kwanzaa, too.)

Anyway, without further ado, the cuffs. Here’s what they’re made of:

Here’s a photo of the artist working away on them:

And, here’s one. (Really, it’s wearable sculpture.):

I have a recycled metal Christmas tree for personal use. I’d post a photo of it, but someone stole my bag–with my camera in it–when I was vending at a festival recently. Such is life in the worldwide headquarters of Three Stone Steps, Baltimore, Maryland USA.

But, the decision on the new camera has been made, and it’s only a matter of time until you can see it, and decide if you want you own, long lasting, recycled holiday tree. (And, the trees would be great paired with recycled paper Christmas ornaments. Just a suggestion, but, really, it’s hard to get much funkier and greener for the holidays….)

My Online World & More Metal!

Well, I’ve been playing around a bit on Squidoo, in fact, writing even more about the funky cuff bracelets I had made from recycled metal. If you’ve not heard quite enough about the subject, you can find even more on my Metal Art from Haiti lens here.

I’ve also been Twittering myself silly. It’s fun and non-committal, and you can find Three Stone Steps’ random musings right here.

And, I’m happy–I think–to say that I found the red le roi shown below a new, good home!

Fantastic Recycled Oil Drum Cuff Bracelets Have Arrived!

I’m tickled to announce that I have at long last–well, after about two weeks–have the fantastic metal cuff bracelets I had made in Haiti from recycled 55-gallon oil drums on my site. You can find these pieces of wearable art right here.

These make a perfect and unique gift. Of course, you may jut want one for yourself.

And, here’s a photo of the artisan modeling his work:

Pretty cool, huh?
