Ethiopian Tribe Turns Trash Into Stunning Jewelry

This Ethiopian tribe turns trash into stunning jewelry and prove just how much creativity can change the way we look at simple things, even if those simple things are just your regular garbage.

They say “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” and the saying couldn’t be more right to the people of this Ethiopian tribe from Africa, that literally make jewelry and beautiful coquette ornaments out of whatever they find lying around.

The Daasanach tribe from Ethiopia is located in the Omo Valley where people search for bottle caps, broken watches and shiny scrap metal that can be re-purposed in a more aesthetic and eco-friendly way.

From bottle cap wigs, to creative wrist watches placed on their foreheads, the creative people of the Daasanach tribe show us that beauty lies in the most simple things, even if those things are thrown away most of the times after a single use.

French photographer Eric Lafforgue is the mastermind behind this unique photo shoot, and as he claims, the Daasanach tribe people are very proud of their work and they refuse to sell it, handing down the jewelry from one generation to another.
