300 mixed paper-beads (heavy on the blue themed).

These do not have to be used to make jewelry, they make lovely home decor display in glass mason jars, or however you fancy.

These are made by women in Rwanda; they will use the income to purchase necessities for their families-- all of the money will be sent directly to the women in the specific co-op who made these beads. I went to Rwanda in December of 2011 where I got these beads to sell on their behalf and met these amazing women in person!

Each strip of paper is measured, cut, rolled, the end glued, strung, dipped and varnish, and dried--it's quite a process.

Please note that while these beads are durable they should not be submerged in water and be treated like any special hand-made bead. Some beads have minor imperfections (eg. a small piece of sand stuck to the varnish--this can be easily removed or kept to add character).
