Ollie Twist Necklace

Description: This beautiful necklace is from  They combined Ugandan printed fabrics and paper beads to create the Ollie Twist necklace. And you get to choose the color!  This necklace comes in four colors: Bright Coral, Goldenrod, Navy Blue, and Teal. I recommend the Bright Coral.  All necklaces are made from recycled paper and are unique in their exact colors.  See the link below for the other color options. 

Just a little bit about them...
Kallie Dovel, traveled to Uganda in the summer of 2007, getting a first- hand look at life in Northern Uganda. While she was there, she met women making paper beads but who lacked a plan to market and sell them. After spending time in their homes and hearing their stories, Kallie knew there had to be a way to give opportunities to her new friends. She brought a box of jewelry back to the U.S., and spent the next year finishing her degree and dreaming up the concept of a development organization. She brought a few friends on board and her ideas quickly evolved into 31 Bits. The girls traveled back to Uganda in August 2008, and selected six women to begin buying jewelry from on a monthly basis. Since then, we have grown to 63 women; each with a unique story of suffering that has been overcome with joy and liberation. Find out more about what we do in Uganda here
