Reviving an ancient beading tradition in Southern Africa, this resource showcases the funky, innovative, and visually stunning bead art created by the woman of MonkeyBiz, a uniquely successful grassroots project that gives employment to poor women and provides them with skills training and HIV/AIDS support.
