Recycled Paper Bead Bracelets
These recycled paper bead bracelets are handmade by widows and abandoned wives in Nawansega, Uganda. Each bead is made by cutting the paper into long strips and individually hand rolling it around a needle. The beads are then strung, hand dipped into sealant, and hung to dry. The women do this once a day for 6 days, making the entire process of creating a piece of beaded jewelry about a week from start to finish.
The Ladies of Nawansega thank you for purchasing their jewelry.
