Kimuli Handmade Beaded Single Strand Necklace in Pretty Pink

We named these darling, simple to wear single strand necklaces Kimuli which means flower in Luganda (a local language in Uganda). 

This single strand necklace is all in one color - a pretty soft pink withpaper beads in the same shape and color for a monochromatic look.  

The paperbeads for these necklaces are made from recycled paper, no two are exactly alike. The paperbeads have been made from thin 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 gold tone.

There is no clasp. 

The length of each necklace is just about 16-17 inches.

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