Wokoscrafts is a company owned by Peace Wokorach, which specializes in creating African-inspired paper jewelry. The company's focus is on designing and producing a variety of paper-based jewelry items such as earrings, necklaces, and bracelets. The unique aspect of Wokoscrafts is its use of paper to create these stunning pieces of jewelry, which are not only eco-friendly but also reflect the rich cultural heritage of Africa. I also use high-quality stainless steel in our designs, which is a durable and sustainable metal that doesn't tarnish or rust.

Jewelry with a story: Meet the maker behind WokosCrafts
Hi, I'm Peace, the founder of Wokoscrafts. Growing up in kinawataka, a neighborhood in Uganda, I learned how to make paper beads from a neighbor who offered us cookies in exchange for our creations. At first, it was all about the cookies as a child, but over time, I grew to love making these beautiful beads. In 2012, I started making my own jewelry and selling it to my schoolmates for pocket money. As my skills improved, I began sharing my craft with people in my village, and they loved it!
When I moved to the Netherlands in 2020, a friend was amazed by one of my bracelets and asked me where I got it. I told them that I made it from paper, and they were surprised and curious about how I did it. That's when I got the idea to create tutorials on YouTube, and since then, my channel has grown to over 3k subscribers and 200k views.
I take great pride in making paper beads and turning them into stunning jewelry that reflects my Ugandan-African heritage. For me, making jewelry is a way of letting out the colors and creativity that are always swirling around in my head. I'm excited to share my passion with you and invite you to explore my collection of sustainable African-inspired paper jewelry. Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and my craft
