Gulu Handmade Single Strand Necklace with Chunky Paperbeads (Multi Color)

We named these fabulous chunky necklaces Gulu, a beautiful city in Northern Uganda.

These are long strands that really showcase the paper beads made from recycled magazine paper. This necklace has rounded bicone shaped beads in lots of colors but with, black, green, pink and others.  

The necklace is stunning and really makes a statement about recycling paper!  Perfect gift for the book or magazine lovers and those that advocate for environmental causes and recycling. 

The paperbeads for these necklaces are made from recycled magazines, no two are exactly alike. The paperbeads have been made from strips of paper, rolled tightly and then varnished 5 times for durability before being strung into a necklace. This is a very time consuming process. But, it is like making something beautiful from nothing.  

The seed beads in this necklace are in gold tones.

There is no clasp. 

The length of each necklace is just about 14-15 inches.

These are handmade by our team of women artisans in the slums of Kampala, Uganda. No two necklaces are exactly alike.
