    My fave are the Jumbo <> in green – adore them!

  8. Terase on October 10, 2010 6:36 pm

    Oh my goodness! Hard to choose just one!! If I HAVE to it has to be the PSYCHEDELIC SLIMS. I can see these with so many other colors and put to use in many projects.

    The site is great and is now bookmarked for future use!!

    Thank you so much for this project.

  9. Jennifer on October 10, 2010 8:24 pm

    Oh gosh, I’m between the berry bead and the simba… but I think the simba. And I definitely want the multicolor option. SO cool! Thanks!

  10. Hilary on October 10, 2010 8:28 pm

    Oh wow, these are amazingly beautiful!

    Love them all but The Spaceships Have Landed have the best name for an awesome bead.

  11. Denny-dear on October 10, 2010 8:44 pm

    If I had to choose the Berry bead, but I think they all are quite unique =^.^=

  12. Shaiha on October 10, 2010 9:21 pm

  13. Nancy C. on October 10, 2010 9:34 pm

    I’ve seen a necklace made of these before, they’re absolutely gorgeous! Didn’t know you could get them online.
    My favourites are probably the cute little red Dodo 1.5cm beads, but the barkcloth ones are really cool too.

  23. Barbara on October 11, 2010 11:10 am

    I’ll pick barkcloth. I like those little stripes

    Love the beads and all the colors!!

  29. Shari J. on October 11, 2010 8:43 pm

    I have fallen in love with the banana leaf collection. However, the cow’s horn and the mixed glass beads are hard to resist for the purposes that I use beads. Thanks for bringing this site to my attention. What a nice giveaway opportunity.

  30. MelodyJ on October 11, 2010 8:47 pm

    liro or blue glass…all are awesome…thanks for the chance to win

Heidi on August 26, 2010 10:15 pm

I love the pure purple jumbo “The Spaceships Have Landed” paper beads, but there are so many gorgeous ones to choose from. The barkcloth beads are also beautiful.

Irene L on August 27, 2010 6:03 am

I love all the bark cloth beads. The texture and the colors are so dramatic.

Corvus on August 27, 2010 6:31 am

The jumbo To Infinity and Beyond are awesome.

Julia on August 27, 2010 7:09 am

I like the Barkcloth Beads. They are so unusual and tactile. The chunky size is an eyestopper for sure! It is also neat that they are a product which is made by another group and shared Through the Mazumi site- I especially like that they are networking in their enterprises!

skinglow muse on August 27, 2010 3:12 pm

I was amazed to find such an wonderful site while I was researching making jewelry from recycled materials. These beads are so colorful and amazing…they make you happy just seeing them. Beautiful! Thank you.

ChristinaRk on August 27, 2010 4:45 pm

Hands down, my favosite is the Jumbo green beads. However, due to it being recyled, I love the recycled beads too.

They are soo beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jennifer on August 29, 2010 8:25 am

Gorgeous beads! I can’t choose just one! My faves are “The Spaceships Have Landed” and the “To Infinity and Beyond.”

We hear you .. the JUMBO's are great!

Coty on August 29, 2010 12:48 pm

I love the red berry beads! So natural!

Suzanne on August 29, 2010 7:15 pm

So many colors of the variety of beads but I am drawn to the Barkcloth beads. They look so organic and interesting.

Mildred T on August 29, 2010 7:20 pm

I like the blue/white TO INFINITY & BEYOND beads.

Sally Lowe on August 30, 2010 9:11 am

Definitely Omo in turquoise! I made a necklace with an earlier version of these beads and it’s been much admired. These beads are so much lighter and more comfortable to wear than glass or ceramic.

Jewelry Making Supplies on August 30, 2010 12:09 pm

I found your site on this morning and really liked it. I bookmarked your blog and will definitely be back soon to read your new posts!

Kat on August 30, 2010 1:30 pm

Love all the beads on the Mzuribeads website, have at least one of each of everything. Especially like using the Omo (the berry bead) in my jewellery designs as the shape works so well with all my other beads.

Jewelry Making Supplies on September 1, 2010 9:46 am

I loved the article! These types of resources are extremely valuable to anyone interested in making jewelry. I can’t wait to read some more of your articles!

Lynn on September 2, 2010 3:42 am

I am a Mzuribead customer and have to say ALL the beads are fabulous. I really like the jumbo recycled paper beads. I have them in black and they are awesome! But, I love the bead mixes of recycled beads – so much inspiration in one bag. OH, and the banana leaf beads are little pieces of glory! sigh. My favorite? Tough call. I guess I’ll stick with the jumbo! Thanks for the chance to win :)

Jenny Jones on September 2, 2010 12:29 pm

My favorite beads are the Jumbo Spaceships Have landed. They are amazing.

Letha Lynea on September 4, 2010 8:32 am

If I have to choose just one, I favor the Barkcloth beads. I love the color. By the way, the Paper Bead Dress is incredible!

Thank you for appreciating.. The dress is handmade from recycled paper beads and created by the Ugandan Bead King, Sanaa Gateja. He is the creator of the barkcloth and banana leaf beads.. and soo much more to come....

Ken McKee on September 4, 2010 6:17 pm

Nice beads. Hope I win some. Comments ended.

Ken McKee on September 4, 2010 6:17 pm

Seriously, I make paper beads as a hobby. Or should I say addiction.

Renee Antaya on September 6, 2010 1:00 pm

These beads are incredible! They are a good representation of what beauty can come from, like the moth into a butterfly. I would use these as a sign that all is beautiful.

joelle on September 6, 2010 1:32 pm

these beads are way more than just beads they are fair trade for a fairer world and beautiful jewelry and i drool over all the beads but my favorite are jumbo’s in all the fab colours xx

Doris D. on September 6, 2010 9:59 pm

I absolutely love fair trade beads!! I am teaching a cultural beading class at a school in NYC this fall (begins in a week), and will include a class on fair trade beading in Africa. The children range from 5-8th grade, and I am sure they would absolutely love to work with such beautiful, ethical beads.

IndiviJewels on September 7, 2010 3:14 am

Such a worthwhile project and I love all the different colours mixed in together.
