The majestic leatherback turtle is the largest of all sea turtles. Each year hundreds of these endangered creatures travel incredible distances to nest and lay eggs ashore in the lively beachside village of Matura, Trinidad and Tobago, where the community has passionately protected them for 25 years.

Discarded glass bottles are cleared from Matura's turtle nesting beach and transformed into recycled glass beads through a process called flameworking. The bracelets are assembled by hand and completed with a cotton tassel and a signature hand-carved coconut shell turtle charm. Handmade and fairly traded from We Dream in Colour.

8-inches.
