Paper Bead Necklace EXTRA LONG (100 Beads)
Fair Trade - UGANDA
This necklace length is so very popular and versatile. You can wear it long or double it us to a shorter, adjustable length. It is also harder to get!
This necklace is measuring about 35 inches long.
Made of recycled paper by widows & abandoned wives in Nawansega, Uganda. Each bead is made by cutting the paper into long strips & 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.
