Multi-strand Tassel Necklace with Brass Bullet Beads


$ 74.00




Description

This multi-strand tassel bullet 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.
