    Pretty necklace, bright colors but broke on the second time I wore it. My attempt to fix it made it snap again.

  • Great buy!

    This little necklace brightens up any outfit. I get complements every time I wear it. Be careful when putting it on, though, because it *could* break easily. For the money, a great buy.

  • cute but....

  • Wrong color entirely

    Instead of the cheerful, brightly colored necklace that was pictured, I received a swamp green monstrosity... It is really an ugly, depressing shade of green. The workmanship is fine, but a little quality control would have been nice to ensure the item even vaguely resembles what's pictured!I'm usually a fan of Overstock and haven't had any problem before - perhaps that's why I'm so disappointed. Returning it immediately.

  • Paper Necklace

    I was amazed at the workmanship. The beads do not look like paper. The necklace is beautiful. Thanks to Overstock for carrying this wonderful item.

    Quality was good, color isn't the same as pictures by still happy with it, not as long as described ended up ordering the longer one for what I needed, will keep this one to wear occasionally

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Color was fine, not going to be a match due to nature of production
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality

  • Great necklace

    These beads are great! Paper beads are so lightweight you hardly know you're wearing them. The colors are bright and go with so many things. I've gotten many compliments on this necklace.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. I was concerned that the necklace wouldn't hold up, but so far so good.
    • How accurate was the sizing? very accurate

  • Great recycled paper Kenyan Necklace!

    I bought 2 of these necklaces as mothers' day gifts. Each one was unique and the recipients loved them. They would also look good doubled-wrapped around the wrist as bracelets. Much better price than in the magazine I originally saw them in and according to Overstock, money goes to help teach young mothers in 3rd world countries a marketable craft (not sure about other magazine).

  • Recycled Paper Necklace from Kenya

    The necklace is unique. Quality craftmanship and does not look like it is made from recycled paper. I ordered two as gifts and would recommend this item.
