I recently received beads from Mzuribeads, which I've made several jewelry pieces off. Mzuribeads offers top quality recycled paper beads, and handmade Uganda beads with many shapes and unique colors. The beads are durable, lightweight and very glossy. I like the fact that they are so colorful and so very fun to put together and create unique piece of jewelry.
Here is one design, Pics of others are coming soon.
