Brass jewelry hand made from bombshells that helps transform 
the scars of war into the beauty of peace.  After two decades of war, one in every 250 Cambodians is disabled and the proportion of amputees - one in every 384 people - is the highest in the world. 

The Cambodian countryside is littered with bomb casings. Crafts
  men and women use the brass bombshells to create fashionable jewelry,  statements for peace. This symbolic jewelry takes the scars of a country's  horrific history and turns them into something beautiful while at the same time  offering a more positive future for the artisans, as well as the direct victims  of landmines. The jewelry shows a creative reaction to violent conflict, a way of reminding us of the impressive strength that lies within so many.

MILLIONS of LANDMINES

An estimated 2.7 million tons of landmines or UX OS were found in Cambodia after the notorious Khmer Rouge regime.

UNCLEAR LANDS

13% of dangerous land in Kingdom of Cambodia has been cleared of war remnants, which means 87% or 648 km squares left to clear.

fair trade Cambodia. recycled brass bomb casing bracelet, ethically handmade by disadvantaged home based workers. www.handmadecambodia.com

Here is a very brief history; after the Vietnam War spread to Cambodia, the communist Khmer Rouge regime took power on 17 April 1975. What followed was years of devastation, mass killings, torture and fear. From 1975 to 1979, led by the Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot, there was a reign of terror in this small country. In 4 years, nearly 2 million Cambodians were murdered. Under the government that followed a full pardon was given to all members of the Khmer Rouge for the genocide and atrocities they had committed, this was a slap in the face to the surviving Cambodian People. In 1993, a mere 20 years ago, peace came to Cambodia. Since then, the country has struggled to find growth and prosperity while surrounded by the remnants of war. The endless list of challenges they still face include land mines, extreme poverty, lack of infrastructure, lack of jobs and a population left deeply wounded both physically and psychologically.

 Brass jewelry hand made from bombshells that helps transform 
the scars of war into the beauty of peace.  After two decades of war, one in every 250 Cambodians is disabled and the proportion of amputees - one in every 384 people - is the highest in the world. 

The Cambodian countryside is littered with bomb casings. Crafts

This symbolic jewelry takes the scars of a country's horrific history and turns them into something beautiful while at the same time offering a more positive future for the artisans, as well as the direct victims of landmines. The jewelry shows a creative reaction to violent conflict, a way of reminding us of the impressive strength that lies within so many.

While Cambodia has enjoyed years of peace and development since the war and atrocities of the brutal Khmer Rouge regime, today 30% of the population still live below the poverty line (on less than $1.25 per day). For this reason, Craftworks Cambodia makes their unique products by creating fair trade jobs for disadvantaged Cambodians with high levels of unemployment. Artisans and crafts people are paid fairly and equitably for their skilful 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. Craftworks Cambodia's products are skillfully made, beautiful and clever. They offer a range of traditional and contemporary products, from home décor to functional home ware as well as gifts, accessories and jewellery based on the finest aesthetic and artistic traditional workmanship of Cambodia. The designs use inspiration and local materials from Cambodia 's rich tapestry, restoring and preserving many traditional Cambodian skills. The materials used vary with silk being the most common material; it is spun and woven in the villages, and made into superb silk scarves, shawls, purses and other accessories. Also popular are the Eco-friendly items. Recycled paper is used for jewellery and stationery and even discarded rice bags are recycled into wallets and bags. Craftworks Cambodia maintains and practices a strong commitment to environmental awareness with many of the products being made from recycled and sustainable materials.
