Meron Earrings

Regular price $36.00

These teardrop earrings with tassel fringe earrings are hand crafted by a cooperative of talented artisans outside Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This cooperative employs and supports women living with HIV/AIDS. The organization partners with farmers and local landowners who allow the women to sift through freshly tilled farmland in order to collect and upcycle spent artillery shells left from various civil wars. The shells are separated and sanitized, then melted and crafted into delicate beads used in creating a stunning collection of unique jewelry.

  • Approximately 3" L, 1 1/4 " W at base of the teardrop, 2 1/2 " W at base of tassel
  • Handcrafted in Ethiopia
