New Jewelry with Paper Beads

Ever since the women at the Al Falah coop learned how to make paper beads out of recycled magazines earlier this month, they've been going bead crazy! I'm so happy (and surprised) how quickly this project has taken off with them, and with only a minimal amount of guidance from me.

If there's one thing you can say about these ladies it's that they work great under pressure. They've been working on finishing up all their UFOs (unfinished projects) and making necklaces and bracelets out of their new paper beads so that I can take them to Rabat and hopefully sell them to COSing volunteers.

This past week Fatima even traveled to Khemisset to seek out jewelry closures. Way to go Fatima!

The following pictures were taken yesterday as the ladies worked on putting the finishing touches on their beaded creations.
