How are the beads made?
Our bead makers collect colourful recycled paper, usually in the form of old calendars, cereal boxes, pamphlets or magazines, which are then skilfully cut into a series of small triangular shapes.
These shapes are tightly rolled and glued, to form a unique bead shape and colour before being strung and coated with a minimum of four coats of quality varnish. The result is a unique piece of jewellery.
Wear them. Empower them.
‘Every time I wear the jewellery I get compliments! It is also a good feeling knowing the money is going to provide children with the opportunity to go to school.’ – Laurel
‘It is hard to believe it is made from recycled paper, the beads are great gifts especially as you can buy matching earrings, necklace and bracelet.’ – Margaret
