Silver plated bullet casing triple bead bracelet from Ethiopia measuring approximately 7". On Entoto Mountain, roughly half of the villagers have HIV/AIDS. Not because it's a pocket, but because those afflicted are no longer welcome in their own homes. Entoto welcomes them with open arms giving them the dignity they deserve. Due to the decades of on again / off again war, they have a steady resource of bullet casings. The artisans take these casings, melt them down, and make stunning jewelry out of them. Out of the ashes of war comes remarkable beauty.
This was perfect, I bought it as a gift. It’s very delicate looking and well made!
