Beads in Bulk


The Product:

Makers gonna make! What creations will you make with these beauties? Earrings, necklaces, bracelets? These are a great material for those creative projects stewing around in your brain. Each bead is similar in kind but unique, due to the hand-made nature.

The Story:

Over the course of several days, locally sourced dry clay is made into a moldable form, kneaded into shape, and kiln-fired and glazed several times. The group started with just 2 people who used 50 cents to buy some clay and a bowl to use as a kiln. Today, our clay group, made up of 14 people, supports up to 20 families in Gonaives. A true redemptive story of starting with what you have and watching it multiply!
