Up-cycled artillery beads weighted with lariat ends allow this versatile necklace to be worn many ways.
Artillery pieces will patina naturally over time. For greatest longevity, wipe down pieces with a dry, non-abrasive cloth after wearing. To restore shine, dip metal pieces in a lemon juice and water bath or clean with mild soap and water. Thoroughly dry with a non-abrasive cloth.
In Ethiopia, we partner with Artisan Businesses seeking to bring hope and dignified work to women emerging from vulnerable situations. Many of the women who craft our pieces are HIV+ or are beginning new lives after working in prostitution on the streets of Addis Ababa. Through fair and meaningful work, these women are overcoming stigma, pulling themselves out of poverty, and rediscovering their value and worth.
