Three Bead Earrings ~ Recycled Artillery Casings


$ 24.00




Description

These darling dangle earrings are made by a cooperative of talented artisans outside Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. The women in this artisan group are HIV-positive and have been ostracized from society. The cooperative partners with farmers and local land owners who collect empty bullet casings. The empty shells are brought to the co-op, separated, sanitized, and then melted and crafted into different types of beads for creating a stunning collection of unique jewelry. These earrings are created from brass and nickel. Approximately 1.5"L
