The Story Behind the Art:
These unique paper beads are made in Kisumu, Kenya by talented artisans who upcycle discarded magazines and papers, transforming them into functional and stylish jewelry and accessories.
The papers are torn and then rolled to form the beads. Once complete, the paper beads are sealed in many coats of glossy, water-based varnish.
Because of the wide variety of recycled paper goods used, the handmade beads can come in all sizes, shapes, colors and patterns - truly speaking to the one-of-a-kind nature of each piece.
About Creative Alternatives:
Creative Alternatives works with marginalized producers in rural and urban areas of Kenya.
The producers take pride in the product ideas they are able to develop and market through Creative Alternatives.
The producers are self employed men and women, largely young and middle aged, who have failed to get formal employment.
They have thus had to seek employment in the jua kali (which translates into hot sun in the Swahili language) sector.
They work in groups, small family owned businesses or as individuals.
