Tizita - Braided Necklace (Silver)

The Tizita necklace is an elegant silver hued piece, made with delicate beads. It was hand crafted in Ethiopia from melted bullet casings and recycled metals. In the mountains of Northern Ethiopia, farmers supply bead makers with artillery shells (from former war conflicts) that are found on their lands. Village artisans melt these shells down to produce handmade delicate beads and then they are sent to Entoto Mountain where a project employs women from the area. These women skilfully create beautiful jewellery in a loving, community environment. Handmade, fairtrade, fabulous design. What's not to love? Read more on our blog
