Selected by andu amet
Although it is not well known in Japan, there are still many more genuinely beautiful things in Africa. In andu amet’s online store, we present those kinds of items that we found while traveling around Africa as “Selected by andu amet”, in addition to leather products made in our atelier in Ethiopia.
This jewelry is made in an atelier founded by a local woman, with the aim of empowering the women of Ethiopia.
Economical and mental independence of women, as well as stable job creation are realized through making these jewelries, and it has been given the “WFTO certification: World Fair Trade Organization certification”, the international fair trade certification.
In this series, beads made by melting bullets that were unused in regional conflicts and civil war, are reused. By recreating weapons that make people sad into jewelry that make them shine, they represent the hope for the future and the strength of moving forward. Please enjoy the uniqueness and glow that can be created only by hand.
A short-length necklace with disc-shaped metal parts on the front. The long length around the neck makes it look neat, yet modern and gorgeous.
Every process, starting from making tiny beads, is done handmade so please be careful of knit or silk clothes getting caught, or of color transfer to whitish clothes, as the beads have individual differences. Pulling them strongly may cause damages, so please be extra cautious when handling them.
Because they are made of recycled metals, the exact amount of content is unknown. Especially for those who have sensitive skin or allergies, please be aware of any skin trouble when using it.
We check the products one by one, but please note that the selected items may be slightly different to andu amet’s original items.
