The artillery collection represents redemption. Giving something that had the power to cause pain and destruction, and using it to empower change.
The piece of jewelry in this collection comes from Ethiopian women who specialize in working with recycled bullet casing left over from the war between Ethiopia and Enitrea over a decade ago. These bullets have been stockpiled and crafted into beads you can see in bracelets, earrings and necklaces.
