AfriBeads are made by a group of 30 women from Kampala in Uganda called the AfriBeads Women’s Association.
AfriBeads are fashioned by hand from magazine pages. No two beads are the same.
The beads are individually made from triangles of paper, which are rolled, glued, and varnished with an environmentally friendly sealant. The finished beads are then arranged between tiny glass beads and created into unique, gorgeous, and recycled jewellery. The necklaces are finished with non-allergenic parrot clasps. The beads are water resistant and durable in normal wear.
