This Mumu braclet is stunning. Tiny rustic gold coloured and copper beads are featured on the bracelet, stylishly sending focus to the large gold feature disc. 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?
