These beautiful pieces of jewellery are hand crafted in the Gonder area of northern Ethiopia by relatives of The Kindu Trust’s beneficiaries. Made from recycled glossy magazines, these pieces are not only sustainable but also provide a vital source of income for people living in disadvantaged conditions.
The magazines are cut into long strips and then rolled tightly and varnished. The patterns visible on the beads are the result of the compressed pages which creates a beautiful array of colours across the face of the beads.
The Bead Making project employs 2 women in Ethiopia to work full time on a base salary. The profits from the sale of the jewellery are then split between the workers and investment into new Income Generating Activities.
