We’ll be happy to assist you and answer any questions you have. Once the bracelet is on, you can gently squeeze the ends for a snug fit.
This is American-made recycled jewelry.
Cangles: Our Story started with the observation that our once thriving neighborhoods were now home to poverty with dozens of boarded-up businesses, littered with refuse. We had the idea of creating bangles by recycling cans thrown away due to carelessness. How exciting to actually do something that positively impacts the environment! The bonus was we would 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. And Cangles were born!

JORD Watches

Today I have a product review from JORD Wood Watches. Jord is Sweddish meaning earth, soil or land. JORD watches are one of a kind, premium quality time pieces, hand-crafted with sustainable materials. The item I have received is a quite handsome Natural Green & Maple watch. Let me tell you it is most stunning in person.

94A Natural Green & Maple


Why have that wood grain on the dash when you can have it on your wrist. The 94A series includes a brilliantly etched, multi-colored, metallic face. Square, scratch-proof glass, secure Citizen Miyota movement with date. Stainless steel clasp fastens securely with a simple pinch.
*Hardened, Scratch-proof glass face: 26mm x 33mm
*Wood frame / bezel: 48mm x 42mm
*Band width: 26mm – 37mm transition design (5pc links)
*Lug ends: 42mm
*Stainless face
*Single action clasp
*3-hand Citizen Miyota movement with date window
*Includes stained bamboo display box
Each JORD watch is designed to be splash proof but is not intended for complete submergence in water. Also note that due to the nature of the wood chosen for each unique timepiece, colors and grain pattern may vary from photos.

I recieved tracking, fast delivery and my watch came packaged as pictured. Once open my husband and I were both amazed at the beauty, quality and sturdiness of this time piece. My hubs has a fetish for watches and recently I had gifted him a $400 Citizen Eco-Drive. This 94A Series has the craftmanship to stand next to his Citizen. I imagine this watch will be quite the conversation starter.

Non-Toxic Glass Wasp Trap

This sturdy, colored glass wasp trap will take a bite out of your yellowjacket or wasp problem. Simply add the included lure, a bit of water, and replace the stopper on the trap. Hang or place in an area with high wasp concentrations. Wasps fly up through the bottom hole, become trapped, and drown in the water. After two weeks replace the lure, or just add sweet liquid (lemonade works fine).
To clean: remove the stopper, empty, and rinse. Easy as can be!
Can be hung, or set on a flat surface. Wasps can fly up into the bottom even when it is sitting on the ground.
Measures 5″ in diameter x 8″ high.
Lure made in USA, trap made in China.
Provides a non-toxic, safe way to control wasps.
