Strips of paper are carefully rolled up, dyed, dried, and then strung together to create this 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, the widows must dip the beads into the dye and let it dry seven individual times. The women string up clothing lines all around their villages and hang up the paper beads to dry.
What a detailed process for these incredible necklaces! Head over to our Cascadia Earrings (rafikifoundation.org) and find your necklaces matching earrings!
The last time we got these in, they sold out in two days! Hurry and get one while they last!
