Putting a vibrant twist on the classic silver bangle.
Each Musa bangle is lovingly hand cut and shaped using chunky, polished aluminium accentuated with two colourful swathes of Maasai beads. The aluminium is recycled and could come from a pot, window surround or an aeroplane wing! Wear the bangles on their own or go bold with them in a stack.

'Shanga,' the Swahili word for 'bead,' is a successful social enterprise in Tanzania, which employs people with disabilities to create distinctive, high quality, handmade jewellery, glassware and homeware using recycled materials.
The Shanga family is a unique group of talented and inspiriting individuals, many of whom have faced extreme hardship and rejection in their lives. By seeing ability over disability, Shanga is committed to helping people gain confidence and independence through employment, and tackling fear and prejudice in the community.
