EARTH DAY IS APRIL 22nd!!
To celebrate Earth Day I put together this nice little selection of eco-friendly, fair trade jewelry pieces made with paper beads. When I was a young teen, I remember receiving a paper bead making thingy for Christmas and I was so in love with it. I thought the concept of paper beads was just too freaking amazing. I grew up and forgot about that paper bead maker and the concept of paper bead making all together until I did a search recently for eco-friendly jewelry. I had no idea paper beads could look so smooth and elegant and these works of art are far superior than what a teen with a bead making toy could possibly produce.
The pieces below are handmade in Africa and fairly traded.
