Description

Rajana artisans symbolically resurrect life from the damage of war. This handcrafted tree is made from one of the many bomb casings still found across Cambodia. War in Cambodia littered the landscape with bomb casings and unexploded bombs. These casings are collected by a demining agency and transformed by artisans with Rajana. “When we make jewelry [like this] then we know our country has peace,” said one young silversmith.

    When I read the story about this necklace, I was particularly touched. I cried. Cambodian artisans hammering Trees of Life out of brass shell casings. I thought about my friend Diane, who is a social justice activist and I wanted to buy it for her, but then I saw the price (at that time) of $38. I thought, well, Diane is a ten-buck friend, not a 38-dollar friend. If I saw something that cost ten bucks and thought of her I'd snatch it up, but not $38. I started to put it back, then I thought, "No. I like it too." So I bought it and wore it 28 times (marking the box with a tally). Then I gave it to Diane, my ten-buck friend. She loved it, and the story behind it of the artists forging trees of life from casings.

    I have a lot of ten-buck friends, so now I routinely own one of these and "work on it" for a different friend. Each time I wear it, I mark a tally and think of that friend fondly. I count each wearing as $1, then gift it when it gets to $10 remaining. This is as fun for me as it is for them.

  • Glad I purchased this item.
