MagicBead Artisans Booth at Disney Hollywood Studios

While strolling past the Rockin' Rollercoaster I came across a fun little booth that had rows and rows of bright and colorful beads hanging off of it. Never one to pass up looking at a jewelry store, I had to stop and was delighted at what I found. These fun beads in rainbows of brilliant color are actually Disney Guide Maps and paper products collected from around Walt Disney World that have been turned into fun jewelry!

The colorful papers are careful selected and shipped to 50 talented artists in Uganda Africa where they then get hand rolled into unique beads. Each bead is an artists' showpiece of care and craftsmanship. These great little gifts can also be found in locations at Epcot and Disney's Hollywood Studio. Not only does your MagicBead purchase help the planet by recycling paper waste, but it helps to eliminate poverty in a third world country, and you get a beautiful piece of art to wear. That's a gift that's just packed fun of win!

I keep kicking myself for not buying any when I saw them. I think next trip I will absolutely be bringing some home.

I was just at Walt Disney World last week and I made sure I found these. They have all different colors and they are quite lovely. I got a really pretty necklace.
