Brass Bead Necklace ~ Recycled Artillery Casings


$ 42.00




Description

This brass 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. The women partner with farmers and local land-owners who find and collect empty bullet casings. The shells are brought to the co-op, separated, sanitized, and then melted and made into a variety of beads for creating a stunning collection of unique jewelry.

Approximately 10"L
