Recycled Paper Bead Necklace

Recycled Paper Bead Necklace | Make stuff | Scoop.it

The gorgeous coloured beads in this Fair Trade necklace are made by women in Uganda who roll glossy paper from old magazines to make each bead, varnish the beads, and then turn them into beautiful jewellery.

Made by the women of the Kind Mothers Project, an association which was initiated by eight Ugandan mothers who felt touched by the plight of children living under difficult conditions in their country. They realized many children were in dire need of help and they wanted to make a contribution towards improving the situation of these unfortunate and vulnerable children, and help to improve their lives. The money raised from the sale of this hand crafted jewellery helps provide education and better future for these children
