Our wonderfully creative handmade East African paper bead jewelry products are hand roll strips of glossy recycled paper into a bead shape. The bead is not painted, but becomes the color of the paper that was used. Later, the bead is coated with a lacquer so that the beads can withstand rain, snow and moisture. All Daraja Imports products are Fair Trade and handcrafted in Eastern and Southern Africa from local, sustainable and/or recycled material.
There are approximately 7 mini beads in each earring and each of the 7 beads is usually a different color. Each pair of earrings is unique and the exact colors in any particular multi-color earring pair will vary.
We have a variety of colors to choose from. If you have a color preference pictured or not, please note this within the "Additional Comments" section during final checkout. If not, we will happily choose for you. We will work to complete your order with the color of your choice but due to the nature of the business and availability we may have to substitute another color, unless stated otherwise. Thank you for your understanding.
