Going insane for Shains

Kids love accessories, especially if they feature detachable bits, colour and a ' make and do' element to them. One brand that encompasses all of this is Shains – cool recycled ( and recyclable) accessories for children, tweens, teens and adults. Wearers can make a written statement with a trendy bracelet, necklace, key ring or brooch with interchangeable letters and icons.

You simply press the letters/ icons into the accessory, changing what you have to say whenever you like – every day if you wish. A nice aspect is that with each Shains sold, a percentage of the net profit is donated to environmental organisations. As well as this, kids can swap their letters and icons with friends and family. If you'd like to start ' shaining' ( yes that is a word!), you can get a bracelet or cuff starter kit, which both contain the entire alphabet and seven cool icons. You can also accessorise with Shains brooches, key rings and necklaces. Shains can be ordered by phone. See www. ticktocktrading. com for details. They will also be available in selected stores throughout the country in 2010.
