Ethiopian coin and Hematite leaf necklace. Coin hand drilled by me. Ethiopia is a beacon of light in a world ravaged by colonization, they never had every one of their resources sucked dry by a warmongering nation from Europe. This necklace is on a thick solid Brass chain, approximately 16 inches long, accented with a sparkling blue Labradorite crystal. One of a kind.
Coins have been used around the world since the beginning of history. They’ve been used to purchase goods, make bribes and have started and ended wars. For such a small object they have an incredibly vast and varied history. In most countries coins are imprinted with official government or historical figures. Ancient tokens are decorated with the deep mythology and folklore of gods. No matter the design, each coin holds a unique history that is imparted by each and every hand it passes through.
