Monkeybiz Bead Project


My newest fab find is a company called Monkeybiz that creates beaded animals, dolls, coasters and artwork.  I am absolutely hooked on the adorable Monkeybiz beaded animals and think they would be perfect in a baby nursery or kids room.

The mission behind the company is truly uplifting and adds another great reason to buy their beautiful pieces.  The artists behind Monkeybiz products are women from Cape Town, South Africa with incredible talent and creativity.  These women live in an economically depressed area and have known poverty and deprivation throughout their lives.  The Monkeybiz bead project enables them to create these pieces in their homes, where they can earn an income while looking after their families and limiting the cost and time of transportation.

Check out some of their beaded animals for sale at ABC Home:

    These are so cute. I have actually seen one of these in a magazine used in a Contemporary girl’s room and it was adorable.

      Hi Gina,
