This necklace was crafted with strands of delicate beading and features an Ethiopian Coptic cross. Length 51cm. 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?
