I love unique jewelry. Something that almost no one else has, something that is just mine. And that is exactly what you will find with Cangles Recycled Jewelry! Cangles jewelry is based on recycled jewelry. I contacted Cangles and asked them if I would be able to review their product, and was so happy they said yes. I was emailing back and forth with Shannon she is so wonderful to work with. I didn’t know what to pick and Shannon helped me out, seeing that I have an Autistic son, we decided on the Autism Awareness Personalized ID Bracelet.
If your a parent of a special needs child, especially an Autistic child you always have that worry in the back of your mind that they might wonder away. I know I always worry about that with Devon, with this ID Bracelet, I now have a little bit of peace of mind, that someone can contact me and that they will know that Devon is Autistic. Devon does not usually like to wear any jewelry, but he didn’t mind this bracelet at all, it has a secured clasp that can’t be undone by Devon and as I put it to the test, he can’t break it either, so it is a really good clasp.
I love Eco-friendly jewelry. It is nice to be kind to the earth and protect the environment. I love the look of recycled jewelry. There are not enough words to describe the company and the people who contribute to this company. Not enough kind words can be said. When you make a purchase of their recycled jewelry, a portion is donated to a charity that helps the environment or provides services to people and pets in need. One of the charities is very special to me and my family, Autism Speaks!
Cangles makes bracelets, necklaces, earrings, hair accessories and military tribute/support jewelry. Cangles takes care to eliminate any sharp edges, so you may wear their jewelry in total comfort. It is lightweight yet durable. The cuff-style bracelets hold their shape yet allow for gentle squeezing at the ends for a snug fit.
About Cangles – In August 2009 our family was discussing a heartbreaking drive we’d taken through the neighborhoods where our family had lived for three generations. What were once thriving neighborhoods was now home to poverty with dozens of boarded-up businesses, littered with refuse.
During this conversation the idea of creating bangles by recycling cans thrown away due to carelessness was born. How exciting to actually do something that positively impacts the environment! The bonus was we’d be creating an affordable fashion accessory for you to wear – Fashionably Green jewelry. Eventually, with enough sales, we could employ people from our community in need of jobs. We chose to name our enterprise Cangles, combining the words “can” and “bangle.” Now, the fact that none of us had a background in jewelry manufacturing did not deter us one bit! With determination a housewife, a retired AT&T problem-solving technical specialist, a court reporter, and a commercial tile layer could certainly accomplish these goals.
Fast-forward two and a half years. Yes, we did! We developed a process by which we could reliably and safely manufacture Cangles Fashionably Green jewelry. All made by hand, we are extremely proud of the quality and finish of all of our products. Not satisfied with just offering bangles for women, you may now select 1/2-inch, 1-inch, or our brand-new 1 3/4″ cuff bracelets in styles for men and women. Earrings, hair clips, and necklaces round out our upcycled jewelry creations.
We’ve had the honor of being asked to design four exclusive custom bracelets licensed by Save the Earth Foundation, which are available in our shopping area. Proceeds from those sales directly aid the Save the Earth Foundation in their environmental research and education efforts.
Remembering those in need is important to us. From every item that you purchase, a portion is donated. The Food Bank Council of Michigan, the Wounded Warrior Project, and Cass River Pet Friendz are among the charities you’re donating to when you purchase Cangles. All recycled aluminum can tabs are delivered to the Ronald McDonald House in Detroit, Michigan, in memory of Nicole Emily Briggs from Vassar, who lived her brief life from August 16, 1986 to March 12, 1990. And in honor of our mother, Shirley Jean, we’ve designed five special Cangles “Cure” bracelets. From each bracelet your buy, $1 is donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.
