Promoting Louisiana One Bead At A Time

In the News, Galeria Alegria, Stephan Wanger, New Orleans, Mardi Gras

The technique is new - 95% of Mardi Gras beads are recycled - all beads are individually cut - and molded into shape with regular adhesive

These links are just a few - we recommend that you search for Stephan on google or Youtube to find more coverage


Here is a list of our favorite links. We hope this list helps you to make your own recycled Mardi Gras bead art. If you have suggestions about other sites to include, send an email to
