By recycling exploded symbols of war into luxury jewellery collections we support landmine clearing, contribute to economic empowerment and revive ancient cultural craft traditions. Handmade by Cambodian and Balinese artisans, all of our jewellery collections are painstakingly designed and made by recycling found war time bullets.
“This beautiful bracelet that was a scar of the war, a bullet, inspires me with a lot of positive thoughts from its transformation. Thank you for giving one more hope to my world. If anyone wants to share this positive energy please visit the website, there are more beautiful stories there.”
I just absolutely love my bracelets – all 3 of them. I purchased the square bangle, a round one, and a chain link bracelet, all with sapphires. I get so many compliments. I would like to purchase 2 bracelets for Jolie Chan, our celebrity guest who sang during the fashion show.”
Marcy Laront, American Women’s Association President, Hong Kong
“I love the back story of Emi & Eve. The handcrafted artisan jewellery is impact driven for the conscious fashionista. Inspired by the beauty of nature, the Tamarind earrings with pools of sparkling brilliance are the perfect accessory to dramatize an outfit and a great conversation starter.”
Our artisans in Cambodia recycle spent bullets from the Khmer Rouge war by melting them down into an ingot, which is then flattened through a mangle. Flat pieces are cut into shapes by hand sawing or a template cutting tool. To create a wire, narrow pieces are fed multiple times through a hole template until the desired thickness is achieved. In Bali the same methods are used for bullets found in Java. It’s a lengthy process which could be a lot shorter if the brass was bought as a sheet in a shop. We choose to do it this way though, to forge a powerful story of positive from negative transformation, adding true value.
Artisan Heang grew up in war-torn Cambodia. Why did he choose to get involved in recycling bullets and missile tubes, instead of leaving his memories alone?
“I want to show that it is possible to make something beautiful from these ugly things that were used to kill people.”
