Paper Bead Jewelry:
We’re really proud to support the work of female artisans and beaders in Bungatira, Uganda. We love their work and are thrilled to sell their pieces to you here.
We’ve had the good fortune of locally selling of the approximately 1,000 pieces we brought back from our last trip.
93% of the profits from paper bead jewelry sales go back into our Paper Bead Project, so that it maintains the ability to be a self-sustaining project and truly supports the women of Bungatira. Watch this 2-minute video to learn more about our Paper Bead Project.
Ugandan artists Ivan Leku, Obonyo Seddrick and Calvin M. Brown work out of Gulu, Uganda. They’re working artists who believe art brings healing and hope. Seddrick uses the proceeds from his painting sales to pay his school fees. All three artists use proceeds from their painting sales to pay for necessities like food, rent and medicine.
All paintings are unframed. You can purchase any of the paintings via the PayPal links. Prices do not include shipping and handling.
If you’re in the Redding, CA. area, you won’t need to pay shipping and handling as long as you’re available for pick-up. If you’re not in the Redding area, please plan on paying shipping fees.
100% of the profits from the painting sales go directly to the artists. Thanks for supporting art in Gulu!
