Earth Butter Beads

Desiree Malan of Earth Butter Beads founded EBB as a means of providing part-time employment for single mothers from impoverished communities in the surrounding rural areas.
Beads are hand-rolled and hand-painted to produce little ceramic works of art, in which even the fingerprints of the bead-makers often remain, making each bead truly 'one-of-a-kind'. Beautiful, colourfast and durable. Earth Butter Beads will enhance any jewellery or craft project. 

Desiree is donating a $50 gift certificate to her Etsy Shop.

Visit Desiree at her Blog, Website, Etsy Shop, and Facebook.
