A single strand of recycled paper beads strung with green-colored glass seed beads attached to 3 strands for a layered effect. Each necklace measures approximately 24" inches and features an easy-to-use snap clasp. Each paper bead is hand rolled, glued and finished with 5 coats of a non-toxic varnish. 

This item was designed by Bladinah Nabawanuka-one of our Ugandan women working toward becoming business owners, self-sufficient and leaders in their communities. 

Prior to bead-making, she used to toil in stone quarries to feed her children their daily meal. She and her 5 children had been evicted from her home after her husband passed away from AIDS. Now that she's learned the skill of bead making through our partner initiative, The Namugongo Good Samaritan Project (NGSP*) her life has changed dramatically. No longer breaking down rocks, she cultivates her garden, creates a safe environment for her family while creating jewelry, and is able to send her children to school-a highly respected position to be in.
