These intricately carved Khmer Temple Earrings are inspired by Cambodian traditions. They turn war into peace and carry a meaningful message by giving back to a community once devastated by bombing. They are highly polished and handcast by a vulnerable artisan group in Cambodia from recycled brass bombshells.
Bomb casings are left over from Cambodia's wartime three decades ago. Ironwork artisans skillfully mold bomb shells into beautiful jewelry pieces, introducing a small income to the community. Artisans are paid fairly and equitably for their skillful work, which keeps families together with food on their table. 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. The designs use inspiration from Cambodia 's rich tapestry, restoring and preserving many traditional Cambodian skills.
