"Hope & Peace" - jewellery from Cambodia made from recycled bullets and bomb shell casings
We are proud to stock all of the amazing products we sell at Eighteen Rabbit, but our collection of "Hope and Peace" jewellery from Cambodia will always have a special place in our hearts.
These pieces from Craftworks Cambodia were one of the first lines we sourced when we opened the shop in 2012, and we remain the only stockist in the UK for many of the items.
Sapbay and his team train artisans living in underprivileged communities to use brass working equipment to make the jewellery. Sadly the bullets and bombshells are still an easy-to-come-by raw material in the countryside.
We love everything about the "Hope and Peace" range. The support it gives to the artisans making the products is invaluable. The metaphor of turning "swords into plough-shares" is a lesson for us all. And most importantly, the jewellery is stunningly beautiful.
We had a limited amount of stock in the shop this week and will shortly have more of the ever-popular "Tree of Life" necklaces. We hope you love these amazing pieces.
