It Almost Goes Without Saying The brass in this necklace was once a bombshell, making this piece of jewelry a powerful reminder of strength in adversity. Years of war left the Cambodian countryside littered with bomb casings. Fair trade artisans turn these remnants of violence into symbols of healing, hope, and resilience.
This pendant is actually made up of three separate brass tags: one oxidized, one matte, one shiny. "Resilient" is stamped on the shiny tag; the longest pendant tag measures about 1.5 inches.
