Recycled Bombshell Brass Tree of Life Pendant
ALL-BRASS VERSION OF OUR BRASS AND SILVER PENDANT.
Beautiful Cambodian pendant handcrafted from recycled bombshell brass. Just what is bombshell brass, you ask?
Well, the casings of 155mm artillery shells are bought by Rajana Crafts, a fair trade collective in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, from local farmers who find them littering their rice fields. Spent casings are forged into lovely brass jewelry, cut one at a time by hand in a tiny rooftop studio.
These young silver-workers are turning "Guns to Roses" to assure that the memories of the past civil war and genocide are used to create a wise and peaceful future. Ironically, this is a truly life-affirming piece of jewelry which makes a wonderful gift.
