Recycled Magazine Beaded Necklace
This one-of-a-kind beautiful necklace was created by women involved in the Hope Again Women's Project in Rakai, Uganda. The income earned by these hard-working mothers and grandmothers allows them the ability to obtain medical care and schooling to support their children as well as orphaned children in their community.
Strips of magazines are cut into long strips, rolled around a needle, dipped in glue, hung to dry, and then strung together to make your necklace.
See color options below. Necklaces may vary from sample photos depending on available magazine colors in Uganda.
Length: Approx. 32" long
This necklace can be worn long or wrapped twice around your neck for a shorter look.
These necklaces are made by the Hope Again Women's Project in Rakai, Uganda where the first case of AIDS in the world was diagnosed. The purchase of these bracelets provides income to women affected by the HIV/AIDS virus, which enables them to obtain medical care and support their children and orphans in their communities.
The artisans cut recycled magazines into strips, roll them into beads, and then shellac and string them to create a beautiful necklace.
