Recycled Magazine Bead Wrap Earrings

Item # 36197
No longer available

Not only are these gorgeous pieces of wearable art eco-friendly, their purchase supports fair trade and fair wages for men and women in Africa.

Handmade by women in Uganda from recycled magazines -- individually hand-rolled and coated with a shiny lacquer to make them water resistant and durable -- the beads are then fairly traded to Kenya for hand-stringing...transforming them into beautifully uncommon jewelry. All the workers are paid fair, livable wages -- about five times higher than the national average in Kenya.

  • Choose Blue, Multicolor, Melon or Green
  • Recycled magazine bead wrapped in silver-tone wire on French hooks for pierced ears
  • 1" L (2.5 cm)
  • Handmade in and fairly traded from Kenya and Uganda
