Item details

Make your own necklace (or bracelet) AND keychain using paper beads handmade by Haitian women. Perfect for VBS crafts, summer camp, or just your crafty self!

These craft kits come ready to use. Each craft kit comes with everything needed to create a necklace/bracelet and keychain, including stretchy cords, a button, key ring, and easy to follow instructions. Each kit is self-contained in a small ziplock bag.

The unique paper beads inside each craft kit were handmade by 7 women working in a Haitian brothel. Working in the brothel is an extremely difficult life to say the least, with terrible pay. Earning an excellent, livable wage creating paper beads has provided an opportunity for these women to leave the brothel and make a better life for themselves!

100% of the profits from your purchase go back into this artisan program so that a life of "Libète" ("liberty") can remain possible. Your purchase makes a difference!

The ladies hand-make the beads by cutting recycled magazines and catalogs and rolling them into shape, then sealing them with a varnish. Each bead is completely unique - no two are alike! Each craft kit comes with a tag, signed by the artist who created the beads.

Please note that these beads are coated with varnish but should not be worn in the shower or when you swim. They are made from paper, so they shouldn't be exposed long term to water.

The necklace you make can also be wrapped around your wrist 3 times if you'd prefer to make a super cute bracelet.

    These kits are amazing! I bought three for my kids to make with their Aunt who has been to Haiti several times helping build schools for children. This will be a great activity for them to do together while she's here visiting for Christmas.
