Handmade on Bonaire: accessories

The necklaces, bracelets and belts are handmade on Bonaire
The leather that is used comes from cows and goats. They are the remains of leather that usually nobody knows what to do with. They are used, as they come in, and are transformed into bracelets and belts. The belts are composed of different pieces of leather held together by crotchet yarn and buttons that have lived another life. The bracelet and necklace are made of leather yarn or pieces of leather with second life buttons and beads

The local craftswoman inherited a big bag of buttons from her mother. Since the sixties her mother used to rip off the buttons of every piece of clothing she didn’t use any more. While making the accessories the maker still remembers the jackets and dresses the buttons came from: childhood memories. Great that they now are part of something completely different!

The beads that are use also have a history: they come from necklaces no longer used or torn apart and most of them come from a great-aunt that lived in the twenties and thirties of the last century
