BAHATI, good fortune, luck.
This necklace is a real stunner! Are those shells? Pearls? No they are beads made out of recycled paper! Four strands of hand-rolled baby blue paper beads are finished in a non-toxic varnish to give a stone like resemblance. And the best part of it is that the women who are making this necklace are empowered to rise above poverty and send their children to school.
- Handmade with love in Uganda
Our 22STARS designers are talented Acholi women who survived the war in Northern Uganda. With every purchase you make an impact on their lives and help them getting a better future for their families. Our jewellery is thoughtfully handcrafted from 100% recycled paper and varnished with natural products. This makes each piece unique, lightweight, and waterproof. The paper beads are not painted, but become the colour of the paper used: therefore colour shadings, sizes and patterns can vary a bit from the picture shown.The story behind your jewellery does matter: read more about us on our website.
