FOUND! DVF Look-a-like Bracelets
I recently discovered these bracelets in Overstock.com's Worldstock section and spotted a resemblance to the ones in Diane von Furstenburg's Spring/Summer 2010 show. Not sure if they're of the same origin, but the Worldstock bracelets have their own benefit. They are made from recycled materials ... old telephone wire! The site states that the jewelry is handmade in South Africa:
"The Bartel Arts Trust, or the BAT Shop, is an urban-based community art center that is a venue and facility for skills training, promotion and exposure of disadvantaged and emergent artists in South Africa."
