All the beads are made from the bi-product of the meat industry in Uganda and are handcarved by artisans in a local co-operative. The colours vary from white, ivory, brown, black and grey in a mix of various shades. Sizes are not always exact due to their being handmade and the prices reflect the fact that they are Fair Trade and each one unique. They are ideal for using in jewellery making but could be used in other crafts too. They have a beautiful glossy finish

By buying these beads you are helping Mzuribeads in Uganda which is a community based inspirational project moving away from charitable aid and onto the concept of business enterprise for sustainable income and development. Check out their website for more information:

As the artisans from Mzuribeads say:
Our beads are 'Ethical, Handmade, Recycled and Ugandan'
'Webale Nnyo' - Thank You

As soon as payment is received your order will be shipped by Airmail with Australia Post. I ship worldwide and if you would rather your item be posted by Registered Post with Australia Post then please contact me before you buy so that I can provide you with a price for your approval.

Please allow at least 21 days for your package to arrive if you live outside Australia. If after one month you have not received your package then please contact me and I will try to sort out this problem.

Australia Post prices are not as cheap as in some other countries due to the distances that your package will have to travel. Some of my beads are of the shape that they can not fit into letter packaging and so have to be posted as a parcel. This does mean though that it is sometimes cheaper to buy 2 packs of beads as the postage will be the same for the 2 packs as for one eg large barkcloth beads it is the same price to post for 2 packs as for 1 pack. Another example is that it is the same price to send you 3 packs of paper beads as for 1 pack of paper beads. If you are in doubt please email/convo me and I will check out the price for you. Shipping costs include the cost of postage and packaging and I try and wrap your beads securely so they arrive in a good condition.

Should your goods arrived damaged please let me know as soon as possible and we will discuss how to rectify.
