Brass jewellery 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.

men and women use the brass bombshells to create fashionable jewellery, statements for peace. This symbolic jewellery 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 jewellery shows a creative reaction to violent conflict, a way of reminding us of the impressive strength that lies within so many.
