Memento Necklace

The Memento Necklace tells a beautiful story of restoration. Master beadmakers create the beautiful pendant that hangs from the necklace, and HIV+ women emerging from vulnerable situations string the tiny beads by hand to create this special piece.

How It's Made

As they move through fields of coffee, wheat, and sorghum, Ethiopian farmers scan the ground for a very different harvest—artillery shells from former conflicts. Local craftsmen melt the shells down to create beautiful beads, then transport the beads to women in Addis Ababa who string them into beautiful accessories.
