Barrel Bullet Casing Necklace with Tassels


$ 64.00




Description

This artillery bead necklace is created by a women's cooperative of talented artisans outside Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The women in this artisan group are HIV-positive and have been ostracized from society. These ladies partner with farmers and land-owners who find and collect empty bullet casings. The empty shells are brought to the co-op, separated, sanitized, and then melted and made into various beads for creating a stunning collection of unique jewelry. Available in nickel.
