No Ordinary Earrings. Decades of war have left Cambodia’s farmlands littered with brass casings from bombs, bullets, and landmines. The metal that remains as a reminder of conflict is carefully collected to be transformed into a symbol of resilience and healing. Artisans fashion these brass casings into jewelry pieces that carry messages of hope.
Each of these earrings is inscribed with the Khmer word for “peace.”
