Bead for Life

The paper bead necklace has become ubiquitous among African fair trade producers.  The process is simple, the paper is easily obtained, and the results can be quite beautiful.  Bead for Life’s necklaces, bracelets, and earrings stand out among the rest.

Bead for Life’s “beaders” are Ugandan women and men affected by AIDS.  Many live in Friendship Village, a joint venture of Bead for Life and Habitat for Humanity International.  Grab a few bracelets and a couple of necklaces to match every outfit, and consider hosting a Bead Party.  You’ll support Bead for Life and Friendship Village, plus you’ll get your pick of a whole boxful of unique pieces.
