Recycled plastic beads are made from old cassette boxes by an enterprising group of women in Kumasi Ghana. These ladies are known as the ‘Plastic Bead Ladies’. They are great for creative beading and embellishing. They were purchased directly from the artisans who were paid a fair price.

I have found these beads absolutely great for decorating bags - photos of my African Tote Bags which feature these beads can be found on my Facebook page.

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. Shipping prices include postage and packaging. If postage & packaging is less than quoted when I go to my local post office I always reimburse the buyer and an email will be sent informing the buyer. Please allow at least 21 days for your package to arrive if you live outside Australia. If after this time 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.


Paypal is accepted but you don't need a Paypal account to pay with Paypal. Just follow the payment instructions to be guided through the payment procedure. If postage/packaging is less than quoted when I go to my local post office I always reimburse the buyer and an email will be sent informing the buyer.
