I recently was able to purchase some Fair Trade paper beads imported from Uganda as well as hand painted ceramic beads from Kenya, Africa. These fair trade beads are handmade by women and by making these beads, the women earn fair wages, giving them a chance to better their lives. I’m so excited to be able to help these women by using these beads in my designs. When you are purchasing a design from Reija Eden Jewelry that is made with fair trade beads, you can also make a difference in these women and their families lives. Let’s make a difference together!
