Description

Paperbead African bracelets hand-crafted by women artisans in Uganda. Each necklace is one of a kind as the beads are made of triangles of recycled magazine pages rolled up and lacquered. They are then strung with tiny seed beads into these delicate bracelets. Due to the nature of recycled materials used, colours vary. Customers can request a colour, but it may depend on what is in stock. Please contact before buying if you have a specific colour request

These necklaces help the women artisans in Uganda have a regular income and care for their families. Most of the women are widows with little education and no skills. Previously they earned very little money and often their families would go hungry. A Ugandan woman started a project to help these women get an income through making jewellery. Initially they sold their products to local markets but now are partnering with a non profit enterprise who market their beads overseas giving them a more regular income and other benefits to the group.
