HandmadeMN Giveaway ~ Deeder the Beader

By Mara Olden of Dragonfly Adornments 

Congratulations to our latest giveaway winner! Thanks to all who entered and we wish you good luck with this week's giveaway! 

This week's giveaway is from Denise of Deeder the Beader who is giving away this Rwandan Paper Bead Cluster Necklace and Earring set.


This cluster necklace and earring set was designed using paper and glass beads, accented with antiqued copper chain and findings. The paper beads were handmade in Rwanda by women who are getting back on their feet following the past genocide, illness or other household issues and they are learning a trade to help support their families. The paper beads are in a combination of brown, rust, tan and orange. They are accented with orange and brown glass beads. The necklace is approximately 22 inches though it can be clasped a couple of inches shorter if desired. The matching earrings hang down approximately 1-5/8 inches below the ear-wire loop.
Open US and International.

So hard to pick just one favorite, but today I'm loving the Summer Brights Mother-of-Pearl Double Strand. So pretty! I can just picture it with a crisp white shirt. Love the Rwandan bead stuff too of course!

My fave is actually the one being given away, but I love all the Rwandan bead pieces, particularly because I live in Rwanda and her way of adding wire and metal-ware to the paper beads is beautiful and very unique. kimouna gmail com
