This beautiful, simple single-strand necklace is handmade out of lacquered paper beads, in a process called Quilling. Each bead is individually made from rolled recycled magazines, by women living in Vavuniya, in the North of Sri Lanka, a recovering war zone. Lightweight and made of upcycled materials, this is the perfect boho festival piece to accent your summer wardrobe. Look good and feel fabulous knowing you're also giving back to those in need. Funds from the sale of these necklaces go to support an HIV drop in Center, and Center for Battered Women in Sri Lanka. Ours are artisanal products, each one is unique and small imperfections are part of the charm!
