Details

Bright colors bring a festive feel to this original design. By Akwele Suma, the necklace combines beads made from recycled paper with diminutive disks cut from plastic bottles. The long strand loops around the neck as desired.

The artist uses the paper at hand so paper colors will vary, making each design a unique example of handcrafted art. These beads receive a protective coat of clear nail polish.
