The Woven Ubah Earrings
The Woven Ubah Earrings are this season’s hottest trend! With a lightweight woven disc and a handmade paper bead, it’s the perfect accessory for your beach vacation—or those days when you wish you were lounging oceanside.
Each disc is made by a special group of artisans who live in the Horn of Africa. They are a separate group from our paper bead artisans and are actually a family that works together to make baskets and other home decor out of sissal. We worked with this family to design and create small woven discs for this fan favorite earring.
Each bead is made from paper by women in the Horn of Africa. They use colored paper that they measure, cut, roll, and varnish to make a beautiful, unique, bead. Once the beads are dry, they are used to assemble and make jewelry, creating a one-of-a-kind gift for you and your loved ones!
For a large earring, I love that these do not weigh a lot-- pros of the material! I think it's the perfect size for a noticeable presence, while not being "too much"
I waited for these to come back in stock! They are lightweight and a timeless piece really! I love them!
