MAMBO EARRING Tribal Destiny is proud to feature the unique craftsmanship of Ugandan beaders/artists in our designs. Bead for Life is an NGO that provides impoverished Ugandan women with an opportunity to lift their families out of poverty by making beaded jewelry from recycled paper. The Mambo Earring is made of recycled paper beads, gold tone beads, and 14K plated Gold earring hooks (for sensitive ears). $25 http://www.tribaldestiny.com/product/mambo-earring
This red and blue paper bead necklace is 39 inches (or 99 cm.) long, and made out of hand painted paper, a film poster and a security envelope. But if you don't tell anyone, I'm pretty sure they would never know! The waxed cotton thread is a dark blue, making the lighter blue paper beads really stand out.
