Our founder calls the Asko Necklace - Silver her “I’m-getting-stuff-done-but-still-want-to-wear-a-necklace, necklace”. It’s an easy one to throw on and go! The waxed cotton string of this fair trade necklace is adjustable, so you can wear it with any neckline. This fair trade jewelry was created from recycled bullet casings by a women’s cooperative in Ethiopia. This ethical accessory is adjustable, measures 15” to 24” and the beads are silver-plated metal.
This product is made from 100% recycled bullet casings. Because of the contents of the recycled material, the casings need to be plated with silver to become this color. Silver-plated items have the potential to tarnish, depending on how they react with the pH of your skin. If you're nervous about an item changing colors, look for other designs in our Ethiopia Collection in brass or copper, as those are pure metals made from the recycled bullet casings.
