This necklace is well worth the purchase price. I received a number of compliments on the necklace and was more than excited to share the story behind its creation. The necklace falls to a perfect length, stays in place and goes with anything I wear! I love it and love knowing it was made by woman from Ethiopia.
One of our top-selling favorites, the Merid Charm Necklace is made from recycled bullet casings by an amazing group in Ethiopia. It’s such an easy fair trade necklace to add to any outfit! The name “Merid” is after one of the women in the cooperative that makes this ethical necklace. This mixed metal Upcycled Artillery Necklace necklace measures 26” and has a loop/bead closure. The beads of this ethical accessory are silver-plated metal and pure brass.
This product is made from 100% recycled materials. The brass and/or copper beads are a pure metal, but the silver beads are silver-plated, given the nature of the raw materials. There is potential for the silver-plated beads to tarnish over time, depending on their reaction to the pH of your skin. But don't worry, they'll still be beautiful!
