The bead used to make this ring is made of discarded magazines. It comes from Uganda, where a project called Bead for Life employs impoverished women and men to make these beautiful, colorful beads and thus helps them lead a sustainable life.

I find this transformation of discarded paper fascinating and I am thrilled to be a part of the process by turning the beads into jewellery.

No two beads are identical and therefore this ring is absolutely unique!

The bead is attached with waxed linen thread onto an adjustable metal ring.

The Bead for Life project is a member of the Fair Trade federation.

Size: adjustable

The ring will come inserted in a cloth or rice paper bag with a piece of information about the bead. If this is a gift, I would recommend a handmade, fair trade gift box:


I do not include the gift box in every order in order to reduce waste and to keep the price of the item as reasonable as possible.
