Silver plated coptic cross necklace from Ethiopia measuring approximately 1-3/4" tall on an 26" adjustable knotted cord. 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. After decades of on again / off again war, they have a steady resource of bullet casings. The artisans take these casings and make amazing jewelry out of them. Since each cross is formed by hand, slight differences will occur.
