Description

These earrings are 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 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 different types of beads for creating a stunning collection of unique jewelry. Multiple strands of varied size drop hoops. Available in nickel brass and mixed metals. Approximately 1.25" W x 1.75" T from base of earring hook.
