Bead For Life

ecocessories is about looking at something that is seen as worthless or unwanted to someone else and making that item new again through recycling the materials. I love when I see other people taking on the same initiative through their own projects. Making jewelry is a means for me to pour out my creative energy and make wearable art from the recycled beads and parts. Many people say beading or jewelry-making is life-altering and this video really impresses that point.

Bead For Life is such an incredibly inspiring story of what jewelry making means for women making paper beads in Uganda. The project allows these women to have an income, and raise a healthy and happy family in areas stricken by disease, poverty and war.
