The Angkor Bullet Earrings are highly polished and handcast by a vulnerable artisan group in Cambodia from recycled brass bombshells with a bullet casing center. Literally turning war into peace, these earrings carry a meaningful message and give back to a community once devastated by bombing. The designs use inspiration from Cambodia 's rich tapestry, restoring and preserving many traditional Cambodian skills.
Ironwork artisans skillfully mold bomb shells remaining from Cambodia's war three decades ago into beautiful jewelry pieces, introducing a small income to the community. Artisans are paid fairly and equitably for their skillful work. A liveable and reliable income is especially important for women as it allows them to raise healthy babies and children and provide for their future.
