  • Wonderful place

    . . . . .

    Like another reviewer I have also recently returned from Addis Ababa where I saw the jewellery being made. The many designs are interesting, creative and beautiful. I too have received compliments on my hope necklace. I wish the thousand villages would stock more designs.

  • High quality jewelry created by HIV positive women.

    . . . . .

    I can personally vouch for the quality of this Ethiopian jewelry because I was in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia this past November and made a trip to the the site of where they make the jewelry. I got to witness first hand the women, who are HIV positive, making the jewelry. It was amazing to watch them make the jewelry and also see the calm, supportive environment that has been created for these women. The jewelry is so unique and I receive so many compliments when I wear a piece.

  • Beautiful necklace, beautiful story

    . . . . .

    I was given this necklace for Christmas. This is such a beautiful necklace! I love how versatile it is - multiple ways to wear it, can be dressy or casual.

  • Great necklace with a story of hope and love

    . . . . .

    I was drawn to this necklace because of its story. It is made from bullet casings collected from the Eritrean-Ethiopian Wars. Once I put it on, I was thrilled to find how it compliments so many different styles - casual to dressy. I receive compliments each time I wear it from people young and old.
