Products that change lives

All of our beads are hand made from recycled magazines, posters, and off cut factory paper from Uganda. The art of making the beads is taught to women, by women. The paper is cut, rolled, varnished and assembled through a process that takes three days from start to finish. Once beads are made, they are strung into jewelry. Because our beads are hand made from recycled materials, each piece of jewelry is uniquely different from the other. It has been said that you can read words on some of our beads.
