Strips of paper carefully rolled up, dyed, dried, and then strung to create the beautiful Cascadia Necklace.
Patti, our Widows Program Coordinator in Uganda, tells us that in order to get the bright pigmented color onto the paper beads, that the widows must dip the beads into the dye of their choice and let it dry seven individual times. The women string up clothing lines all around their villages and hang the paper beads to dry.
What a detailed process for these incredible necklaces!
The last time we got these in, they sold out in two days! Hurry and get one while they are here.
