Handcrafted by Cambodian artisans, this highly polished cuff features a hammered medallion and is made from found bomb casings left over from previous conflicts.
Living in an underprivileged community near Phnom Penh, Cambodia, local artisans make jewelry from recycled bomb shells, casings, and bullets left over from Cambodia's war-torn history of the 1970s and '80s.
These artisans re-envision and rework found remnants of war, skillfully molding bomb shells and bullets into art objects of beauty — jewelry pieces to last a lifetime in their new, peaceful role.
With the support of Craftworks Cambodia, the artisans generate an income that will provide their families and communities a real chance at a better future. Craftworks Cambodia ensures that the artisans make a fair wage for their work and receive support for education and training in the communities of Cambodia.
These are not just beautiful jewelry items; they're vividly re-imgained, upcycled creations that nurture ideals of hope and harmony over war.
Cuff dimensions: 1" wide and 7" long
