Layered Recycled Paper Bead Necklace
These three-strand paper bead necklaces are made of seed beads and beads made from recycled paper. Women in Uganda create these beads by tightly coiling a strip of paper around a needle, adding glue, and then using varnish to harden the outside. Each bead takes around three minutes to make.
These pieces make a simple statement over a blouse or dress, or can be used as a headpiece or wrapped as a bracelet.
