    This beautiful and recycled piece of jewelry couldn't get any better. Handmade from beads of glossy paper, this necklace is highlighted by interspersed glass seed beads. These vibrant colors will go great with any outfit. It's fun, recycled, lightweight and would look amazing on you.

    • Made from beads of glossy paper from old calendars and brochures
    • Finished with interspersed glass seed beads
    • Varnished to a high-gloss, each paper bead looks like polished stone or wood
    • Paper is cut in long triangles and rolled to form the beads
    • Wide, short strips for narrow beads and long, thin strips for fat beads
    • Measures 22 inches long

    Story Behind the Art:
    The sign for the Teenage Mothers Association of Kenya indicates that it is 'the last house towards the Obunga slums' the most destitute area of Kisumu. TEMAK is an organization that offers job training in tailoring, hairdressing, secretarial skills, craft making, and recently computers to unwed mothers, girls, and others in the Obunga slum community. As a community center, the organization also provides the community with an educational forum for HIV/AIDS awareness and other health issues

    • Looked nice, but broke quickly

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

    • Great buy!
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      nice colorful beads BUT it was not 22 inches-it was 16 inches long-the claspe was difficult to use-maybe i will try longer one-clasp sounds better

    • Wrong color entirely
      Verified Purchase

      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.

      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.

    • Q:

      "Why did you choose this product?"

      • A:

        I have the bracelet that matches it (recycled paper, from Kenya, same colors). The site where I bought the bracelet did not have the necklace, so now I have both.
