Beehive Bomb Casing Earrings
Handcrafted in Cambodia, these earrings are made from discarded bomb casings left from previous conflicts. These 1.25-inch long polished brass earrings feature a floral design with a bullet in the center from brass hooks.
Living in an underprivileged community approximately 30 minutes from Phnom Penh, Cambodia, artisans make jewelry from recycled bomb shells and bullets. These artisans use bomb casings left over from Cambodia's wartime three decades ago.
These artisans skillfully mold bomb shells into beautiful jewelry pieces. With the support of Craftworks Cambodia, the artisans generate an income that will provide their families and their communities the chance at a better future. Through Craftworks Cambodia, the artisans make a fair wage for their work and receive support for education and training in the communities in Cambodia.
Started 15 years ago by RPCV Renice Jones and her VSO husband, Kevin Ward, Global Crafts promotes fair trade while working with artisan groups to help alleviate poverty through trade. They have been working with Craftwork Cambodia artisans since 2009.
